Q&A with Sam Matla & Joey Suki (and How to Build Your Career)

This episode marks a historic moment for the podcast, as it’s our first ever in-person interview. This interview is with return guest Joey Suki, former world touring artist and current artist coach. I flew to the Netherlands to work with Joey on our latest course, Build Your Artist Career, and while there we recorded this episode.

It’s a Q&A episode, featuring a series of questions about how to find the perfect mentor, where you should invest your money and time, whether or not you should go to college, and much more.
