One of my Favorite Podcasts!!!!

Love this Podcast and Blake does an amazing job! I love hearing the stories courage from creatives - personal side as well as leadership. As an owner/partner of a small creative shop, Rethink Creative, I learn so much from these podcasts about how to run a business, a team and how to build a healthy culture - as a leader - as well as a manager. Keep up the great job, Blake!!!

Interesting and inspiring conversations!

Love these episodes! Whether or not you’re in the creative industry, these conversations will leave you inspired and give you tons of ideas for how to bring your best to your work, friendships, communities, or hobbies. I work in the non-profit world and the principles that come out of Blake’s questions and the guests’ responses have been incredibly helpful for me! Looking forward to season 3!
