Duluth.com 2017 Recap: 140 Videos in 140 Seconds

I’ll take my new year with a side of nostalgia, please.

If you had told me a year ago that I’d be able to spend entire workdays making videos about jellyfish, pizza and puppies … I wouldn’t have believed you. Who gets to do that? Nobody, right? Well, 163 videos later, whaddya know!

I joined Duluth.com in February and have been on a perpetual high ever since. I think it’s the puppies.

But seriously, I am incredibly lucky to have this career and I thoroughly enjoyed going through all of the videos that appeared on Duluth.com (140 or so) to make this 2017 recap. Thank you for watching, and for joining me in my journey with Duluth.com. Cheers to 2018!
