Waking Up From Work

Starting Your Recording Studio & The DIY Spirit W/ Robot Dog Studios Ryan Cohen

November 4, 2019

E31

 

Today We get right into the heart of what’s on my own personal mind. We go into how you start your business full time in a recording studio close to home with Ryan from Robot Dog Studios from outside of Burlington, VT. I connected with Ryan in the Six Figure Home Studio community I’m a part of on Facebook after I found out how close his studio was. After we connected on some content we hit it off.

 

We deep dive into why video is important for social and artists right now and how we create and offer services to support it. We look into taking the jump, picking a location, and starting business in the local recording scene and the DIY spirt behind Ryan and his story. If you want to open a recording studio listen to this. If your getting ready to take the jump and want to know what goes into it, still listen to this.
