How much time do you spend during your workday thinking, brainstorming, and talking with your team about how to grow and improve your business strategy? If you’re someone who wants to stay up to date with business news, probably more than half.

We’re sure you’ll find at least one episode that will inspire you to do something new, or something even better, to grow your endeavor.
This podcast is about the business of design and the design of business, hosted by CPA/Coach Jason Blumer, and to help designers and developers become even more successful.
