E157:

It's great to have guests back on to see what they’ve been up to and dive further into their creative businesses. On this episode we are joined again by engineer, entrepreneur, and artist Jay Maas to speak on how things have been since the start of his AI mastering platform Maastr since we spoke right at launch a year and a half ago. We talk over getting non-bias feedback, working with teams and coaching for the first time, and finding ways to get creative with getting your business started when your budget gets depleted. Great conversation on take two with Jay. If you haven’t listened to E65 go check it out first for context!
