Our 3rd interview podcast from HOW Live (recorded in Boston), brings us two speakers in one show!
Luke Mysse of Crossgrain, got rave reviews by the people we spoke with last year at the Creative Freelancer Conference, and was at the top of our list to speak to because of it. We talk with Luke about how the times in-between conference events is as important as the conference times themselves; using marketing strategy to help your design; leveraging your strengths; and setting up an advisory board for your design business.
Dyana Valentine is always at the top of our list – talking with her is like doing a shot of espresso – you’re always awake and in a better mood afterwards. We speak with Dyana about the changes she has made to Pitch Perfect since our last chat; super conditions; and more.
And on a HOW-related note, for those going to either of the the HOW Interactive Conferences in 2012 (this is the conference we had Ben Lueders cover last year if you want to hear about it directly from some of the attendees), use promo code 36POINT to save an extra $50 on registration.
Has it been a week since Nate and I left Chicago after spending six days and five nights at the HOW Design Live event? According to the calendar?
Well, before even the first recap of the event was recorded, I had spent most of Wednesday in the windy city waiting for Nate to get there. He had spent the entire day in a vehicle with Stefan Mumaw, who was on our show talking about his Caffeine books in Season 2, driving from Kansas City. I was really hoping for some epic road trip stories, but I think other than traffic, it was pretty standard stuff.
As Stefan was with Nate, and he has a new book out (Chasing the Monster Idea: The Marketer’s Almanac for Predicting Idea Epicness), we made him stop in and chat with us and our scheduled guest.
