Aaron Sandhu has one of the most interesting jobs from anyone I know. The variety of projects he’s been involved have taken him to amazing places in the world, such as Borneo, different places in India and (by the time of publishing this podcast) Zambia. He’s a great example of a person who has made a living of his passion.
In this episode we discuss modern day career building and the importance of networking when working as a freelancer. I also wanted to learn Aaron's secret to luring creativity and I think we got a tip we can all use. This was my first podcast and I hope you like it! If you have any feedback, you can tweet me @dinglecast.
