A 5 minute talk I did at Refresh Teesside March event. The idea was to introduce my take on personal projects and share some thought on how to make them work for you. I believe that everyone should partake in a personal project but share a word of caution about not completing projects you start. The overall message is to 'Keep it small. Get it done'
