Two friends who happen to run small businesses, chat about how to keep the FUN in life and work.
Parting doesn't have to be such sweet sorrow. In this episode, Maceo and Puno travel through past, present, and future to connect about Maceo's move to Detroit, the COVID-19 pandemic, and discuss how to keep changes in your life fun. It's all about trusting the process and knowing that most of the fun comes from enjoyin' the ride. Like Mr. Miyaga once said "wax on, wax off."
Lisa Hennesey— "Numbers are not fun... for some people."
In this episode your hosts Puno and Maceo return to talk about their two favorite activities: talking, and talking to strangers (see Episode 5: "Talking To Strangers Is Exotic"). Queue their conversation with friend and former stranger Lisa Hennesey, to discuss how to inject more fun into her brand design business. Hint: ask allllll the questions!
Daniel Chin Yee — "Marriage is work, work is also work."
Is the fight ever really about the dishwasher? In this episode, your hosts Maceo and Puno sit down with Puno's husband & full-stack engineer (hot!) Daniel Chin Yee https://www.dchinyee.com/ to explore how they became this dynamic duo. From "What I Would Say" (before it was overrun by porn aficionados) to ilovecreatives https://ilovecreatives.com/ & PeopleMap https://www.peoplemap.co/, Puno and Daniel have collaborated for years – and always keep it fun. Maceo asks tough questions like "isn't a baby the ultimate collaborative project?" and finds out Daniel is in fact, not from Star Trek.
Jacob Tobia — "Gender is fun!"
Deliciooouuussss optics. Your hosts Puno and Maceo sit down with non-binary voice-actor, producer, and author of the coming-of-gender story "Sissy"...Jacob Tobia! They'll discuss how to find the funny in every situation, like the time Puno gave herself a faux hawk after a job interview (no judgment, here).
"Become a Slashie"
How many slashes do you need to become a "Slashie"? Your inquisitive hosts Puno and Maceo explore this question through a walk down memory lane. Puno shares her journey from UX designer to Stylist to CEO to Cat Photographer, while Maceo explains why he'll never fit one box. Their conclusion? Being a slashie just might be the future in this gig-economy, so learn to say goodbye to that darn imposter syndrome!
