Like Having a Mentor!

Mark, thank you so much for this podcast. I just branched out on my own, full time, as a graphic designer. Your podcast has been invaluable in the information given, as well as being a motivating virtual “business meeting”! As a social person, getting motivated in the morning when I work for myself from home is difficult. Your podcast inspires me and gets me on the right track every day. I also love getting to learn from your experience so that I don’t have to learn as much from trial and error. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise!


I’ve started taking graphic design classes with my university after 20 years of service both to the county and to local governments as a deputy sheriff (getting ready to retire from both). I’ve decided to change my career. I absolutely love this podcast it inspires me to be better and to do better. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this podcast and keep it up. I hope to work as a graphic designer as a side gig, until I can work full time, or do it as a full time gig.

My all time favorite podcast!

I came across this podcast at the perfect time. I've been doing web design and graphic design as a side gig for nearly 5 years after learning my skills through the school of hard knocks. I recently decided to take the dive and go all in with my business, ending a 14 year law enforcement career.

As soon as I listened to this podcast the first time, I became hooked, and in just 4 weeks I've listened to over 50 episodes! Mark delivers information in a laid back, and sometimes quirky way, that is relevant and useful to anyone who is starting, or already has their own graphic or web design business. The insight I've gained listening to Mark's podcast and reading his 4 week marketing boost, has given me so many ideas for my business and has undoubtedly saved me time, money, and aggravation.

Thank you Mark for an amazing podcast! I now have a sense of confidence about moving into my business full time next month, and am blessed to have a several month waitlist of clients! I also have Mark to thank for introducing me to the world of print brokering, which has added a wealth of opportunity and value for my business.

Keep up the good work!
