Amazing free resource
Mark's podcast is such an amazing free resource for anyone running a small architecture firm or someone that wants to start one up. The guests always have something useful to contribute and Mark's no-nonsense and engaging personality really make listening to this a true delight. I'm formulating a plan to start my own firm and this podcast has been so tremendously useful. My favorite way that Mark engages a guest is that they'll often recite a bunch of generalities for how to be successful but Mark always asks pointedly "ok, so how do we do that?" It's because Mark has and is there himself running a small firm, so he gets it and gets down to it!
