Each episode is a no-fluff chat about the nuts and bolts of how designers, copywriters, photographers and other creatives are doing to grow their business to get better clients with bigger budgets. Topics covered include taking control over your business, ending the feast or famine syndrome, finding your niche, identifying the ideal clients who value your services and can pay what you’re worth, developing your own marketing style and cultivating relationships that will last.

In this episode, he shares 2 stories in which he heard about a project that would be perfect for him, proceeded to “insert himself into the conversation” and already secured one of the projects. There’s a lot to learn here, but listen especially for his attitude. If you like what you hear, sign up for my new free ecourse here.
