Standing on the edge of a new venture as a budding entrepreneur is equally exhilarating and bone chilling.  To truly do this you have to strap into the harness of friends and family that believe in you, lean out over the abyss that is no longer having a salary or benefits, and jump.  Think about the moment you did that.  What job did you leave?  Have long did it take before you felt confident that you’d be able to pay the next mortgage payment?  Those first years are hard and tons of people fail.

But our guest today didn’t.  Not the first time or the second.  Johnathan Grzybowski, owner of Penji Graphic Design, is on the show today to share his story, his insights into attracting your first 200 customers, and how the get the best work out of your designers.  We’re glad you joined us.
