Timothy Muza, Photographer & Videographer // Turning His Side Hustle Into A Career, Learning From People You Admire, and Making Space for Passion Projects

Episode #12

We’ve rebranded!

This podcast used to be called ‘The Maker’s Collective Podcast’ and is now called ‘The Work Different, Live Different Podcast by The Maker’s Collective’. You’ll notice that we’ve updated the look and feel along with the name, which will appear across all of our episodes, old and new.

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! Stay tuned to our website and social channels, we’ll be doing a recap of the evening with photos and videos if you missed it.
