EP77 | Brian Hood

Producer/educator/entrepreneur Brian Hood gets real about marketing yourself as a producer and how to properly network.

You will gain an inside perspective on building a profitable studio and managing overhead expenses. In order to do both of those, you must always be learning and expanding your sphere of influence.
