    Hey Jaime, first time here at your website and first of your podcast I’ve heard. Very informative! You know what I did right after listening? Got right to work! The words that resonated the most with me that Dustin said was that the first few clients are always the hardest to obtain. But as long as you take care of them, the business will snowball and referrals will come pouring in 🙂

    Great interview.  I especially liked how Dustin said he really wasn’t aiming to be a entrepreneur but he wanted control, freedom and flexibility.

      Me too! I don’t know any better way to get control, freedom and flexibility 😉 That’s why I love to talk to people about that stuff more than business at first. Sometimes it’s scary to think of jumping in as an entrepreneur! But the benefits make it worth it!
