Introducing BizCraft


First Episode Friday June 15th @ 2:00 PM EST

WTH Is BizCraft?

This is a live podcast/show, we’re not entirely sure what to call it, but we’ll be doing the show twice a month and hope some of you will call or email in with your questions about running a web design business. We’ll go through some of our past experiences with clients, talk about things we’re planning for our businesses, share tall tales and try to figure things out live on the internet together.

Ask Us A Question!

Need to get something off your chest? Need some help with a certain client situation? Planning some big sweeping changes with your business? Please send us your question and we’ll discuss it live on the internet. Hit up this form for an email question or record your question and send that in so we can play it on the show.
