I Have Dreams Dammit! is a podcast for anybody who is pursuing their dreams (or LIVING them!) and need to go a little deeper than just the "go for it" advice. Personal loss made her take a deeper look at the journey of going for her dreams and she now returns to sharing her insights with this podcast.
Lisa Murray has over 10 years of professional experience in the film & music industries in Los Angeles. She is an independent filmmaker and is the founder & Festival Director of the Ag & Art Film Festival in Northern California. Lisa got her start in the online space when she had a popular weekly show on BlogTv.com ("YouNow") and a popular blogging channel on YouTube when YouTube first started.
She will be occasionally interviewing her professional artist & creative entrepreneur friends and associates to gain a deeper insight into what it takes to take that leap and to then stay the course in a creative career.

We need someone to cheer us on!
