[Best of the Podcast] Michael e. Stern on Thriving as a Creative Professional

In August of 2015, I got a call out of the blue from a photographer inviting himself to be on The Marketing Mentor Podcast. He told me he had experience to share.

Well, 3 years and 15 episodes later, I am glad I said "yes" to time lapse photographer, Michael e. Stern, when he burst into my life. 

I've just posted our 15th conversation to close out my 10th year of podcasting. And I've aggregated all of our episodes here, on topics ranging from self doubt to cold calling to tiered pricing, and lots of conversations about dealing with money as a creative person. 

This is excellent holiday binge listening - if you're into that sort of thing! Enjoy.
