  • Evan Dunville: Question : How much importance is there in a logo when marketing yourself (online and in person)
  • Evan Dunville: Another question is what should someone be posting to keep customers interested / what should not be posted?

After Show:

"First off I started listening to your podcast a few weeks ago and started at episode one and I have finally gotten to number 31 and I am absolutely loving it. I am newer to woodworking and even though it is hard to admit I am a little intimidated by drawers and cabinet doors. Are their any videos or educational content you recommend?" - Logan Brodine
