If you’re starved for some listening this week — as you wait for the next episode of The Busy Creator — check out Life In The Woods podcast hosted by Blake Stratton. I was a guest on a recent episode in which we discuss design, business, being independent. It’s a little different than what you’ve heard so far on The Busy Creator, a much more philosophical approach which tends to bend and wind in strange directions.
Blake is a good dude so subscribe to his show and send some networking love his way.
