Maybe you're thinking here's another podcast. There's a lot of them out there but for the most part, when they have a guest is usually someone famous or successful. So, I wanted to give a voice to smaller creators, to share their stories, thoughts, and work. I want to sit down with them and talk about their process to get to their dreams and what struggles they are facing.
