Are you a creative professional working towards building a brand, but struggling to find the right direction?  Creating a business plan that uplifts your life (as much as your customers do) is something that this week’s guests are all about: The Squeeze Network!

The Squeeze Network is a group of energetic entrepreneurs, including actors, singers, performance artists, and fitness instructors.  In this workshop-style episode of the Spiral Marketing Podcast with Karl Boehm, The Squeeze Network came in to gain guidance on how to lay out a path moving forward that will most support their creative customers with future, ongoing events — events that are made by creatives for creatives.
