This is the podcast for people “who can get a job, they just aren’t inclined to take one”. Chief executive of US digital consultancy Rainmaker Digital, Brian Clark, sits down for in-depth chats with artists, video makers, company owners and freelancers to discuss the best ways to be productive and profitable when acting as your own boss.
Clark asks his guests to dig into their own professional histories to discuss side hustles, work-life balance, entrepreneurial spirit, process and the creation of art. The podcast also breaks down elements of otherwise opaque industries; have you ever wondered how people make profit from self-publishing ebooks?
SmartCompany’s pick: Entrepreneurial Art with Henry Rollins. Clark asks artist and lead singer of punk band Black Flag about the qualities that have allowed him to succeed over a 35-year creative career.
