Must listen for marketing folks

If you run an agency, work with agencies or even just work in the marketing field this is absolute must-listen content. David and Blair bring deep, wise insight hard won over years of experience. They are obviously good friends who love to joke around, a feeling that comes through when listening.

I’ve learned so much from both of them and can only say: a thousand thanks.

Listen to it!

Love it! Smart, witty and useful insights - and I'm not even an agency owner or creative freelancer. Really useful for freelancers, consultants and entrepreneurs.
