⚡️ JUSTIN FOX | Artistic Endeavours, Creating A Community & Resisting Compromise

Mere Mortals

Justin Fox is the founder of Zen Garage, graphic designer and all around just a fascinating person.

In Conversation #72, Justin and I discuss: his artistic talents playing in bands and doing graphic design, our thoughts on the music industry and why it's hard to be real, his emphasis on actually achieving things early on so you can be more content later on and how he has been able to create so many different communities and grow them.

As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
