Adventures In Design (art design )

Hey Friends,

I'm really excited to share my newest project Wake Up Call with you! Today I have put together a special episode that shares a three-part series recorded for Wake Up Call but something I believe could help inspire you to get more done by applying your efforts where they belong and learning to be nicer to yourself in the process. Featuring a new 10 minutes combined with the 3 part series that ran as Wake Up Call episodes 17, 18, 19.

Thanks for listening and sharing!
Mark Brickey
