Episode #12

In this episode of the Maker’s Co Podcast you’ll meet Tim, a local photographer/videographer and good friend of ours. We touch on a lot of different topics with him including the importance of finding your passions, turning those passions into meaningful work, and wading through the never ending resources that exist in the world, to help you learn new skills, to find the ones you connect with. We had a lot of fun with this one, we hope you enjoy! PS - We recorded this back in May, so some of the content talked about has already happened, like our launch event!
