Great Content For Non-Musicians Too!

Right now Making Money in The Music Business is my favorite podcast. As a student of the creative process and business strategy I have been able to ruminate on many of the episodes. I am not a musician, but the business nuggets give me a lot to think about as I build my service based business. Will and Kenya bring their years of experience to the table for context. The guests are some of my favorites and ones I haven’t heard of before. Great job!
