Producer and URM subscriber, Anthony Potenza, joins the show to talk with us about leveling up your audio career.
Anthony has always been someone that’s stood out as having an amazing work ethic and the way he approaches his work is going to take him far. So, we wanted to sit down with him to talk about quitting his day job to do audio full time, building connections and drawing clients, the surprising answer for what gear you should actually get for your studio first, and a whole lot more.
“When I don’t have clients, I’ll make sure I’m working on bettering my skills, so I can really wow the clients when they come.” – Anthony Potenza
