544 - Breaking News with Sean Mort

David Defeo

Breaking News takes another full swing at answering the questions you're struggling with. The International Bromance unflinchingly tackles any issue with their collective three decades of trial and error experience out in the real world and a couple of late night shifts screenprinting in their underwear just trying to get things done. They know where you've been, understand your struggles firsthand, and have boldly come back to help lead the way through life's difficulties to the greener pastures that await. Mix in some humor, a brand new baby, and some hard hitting advice to make up the next installment of an episode geared entirely towards taking you to the next level of being a creative professional, Breaking News.

The Mission Of Trust kicks off with a search for yourself that will ground everything you build over the next nine cassettes.

It's time to get your dreams out of your head and onto a very long piece of paper that you'll fill with every aspiration you have.

Time seems to be your biggest enemy until you learn to harness it to work for you and leverage as much time as you have.
