28: Pens, Ink, Paper and Business Advice with The Pen Addict, Brad Dowdy

Mike finishes a nuthatch and is overwhelmed with the response. He connects some art supplies with people who need it and then shares the artwork of some local students. Mike is then joined by The Pen Addict, Brad Dowdy, who shares his journey from drawing tiny things to following his passion by starting a blog, a few businesses, and becoming a podcaster. Class is in session as Brad brings everyone through an intro to pens, ink, and paper and what it takes to create and maintain a successful business.
