Episode 22: The Fine Art of Sticking Pins in Your Eyes

Today’s podcast is without Joe! Instead, I am interviewing Graham Todd, the Group Leader for 4Networking. Graham explains why 4Networking is different than your typical networking event and how this particular networking group can benefit you and your business. I’ve had bad experiences with networking groups and would rather put pins in my eyes than go out to these events!  

On this podcast for small business owners and other creative professionals, I share valuable insights on becoming a successful copywriter and business owner.
