Just a few years in the past, I realized I might actually assist folks. I created an company that I had an investor in and helped fund and rise up and working, and we helped creators and comedians and actors and musicians and athletes on the agent facet. I obtained to pursue that.
What’s cool in regards to the podcast is I get to speak to all these folks about breaking this taboo about the place they become profitable and the way.

It has been enjoyable.
