The 17th episode of our Business Inspires podcast features Jason Willis of Jason Design Studio.

Jason has worked with the chamber for years, even before it existed as we know it today. Years ago, he put together the first full-size directory for the Grandview and Marble Cliff Chamber, which was nationally recognized as a standout directory for our size of community.

Jason discusses topics including:

  • How working in advertising sales helped him get a feel for design.
  • Constantly learning and taking classes in a range of disciplines.
  • Technological disruption in advertising.
  • Taking the big leap to start your own company.
  • Setting expectations with clients.

This is a great episode full of insights about pivoting careers, starting out on your own, and managing clients and workload.
