I share a quick recap of last week’s episode and how I can still be a victim of a fixed mindset. Joe and I discuss our love for Buster Keaton and why he’s so good at building relationships. Buster used to ask his audience for feedback on his performances, but the main message of what Buster did so well was building a strong connection with his audience. We break down further on why you should always focus at least an hour a day on marketing.
On this podcast for small business owners and other creative professionals, I share valuable insights on becoming a successful copywriter and business owner.
