Episode 33: How To Be An Entrepreneur With Mega-Skillz

In today’s episode, I showcase the perfect example of a dedicated entrepreneur. ShaoDow is a rapper with no label, no manager, and yet he was still able to sell over 20,000 albums on his own. How? He’s dedicated. He understands his audience and makes the effort to go out there and physically meet his fan base. This man is so dedicated that he even learned French so he could expand his reach.
