Y'all! I did my first podcast interview.
Alex, a fellow Julian resident, started Floating City Podcast about a year ago. He interviews entrepreneurs and artists that are changing the world with their craft. A while back he asked me to be on the show and after lots of persuasion, I finally said yes.
I really enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone and experimenting with a different form of content.
Eva is an all-American, small-town girl, raised in the San Diego backcountry (Julian, Ca) and has started quite a successful career selling her own Julian made candles and creates content for people that visit or live in the back country. She is a young, and driven entrepreneur and she shares her background on how to succeed as a special education student as well as her vision for the future. This episode is great as an inspiration to start your own project/business, and also if you're a young person wanting to to figure out what to do with your life moving forward.
