This week’s guests, for Bold Moves Podcast Episode 107 Steven Picanza has done some serious, bold moves. Steven went from gigging musician to agency owner to start up founder. He’s struggled and hustled to make his passion a reality. Steven has literally bled on the streets for his hustle (seriously, don’t miss this story), and now he is owning his own business, as well as hosting a podcast with his wife Melissa to help other creative hustlers find the intersection between creativity and business. In his own words, “I’ve built multiple businesses while striving to live at the intersection of creativity and business with confidence and core value alignment.” Steven’s vibe was contagious, and I think it made for an outstanding episode! Hopefully, Steven’s story will interest you. Please enjoy Bold Moves Podcast Episode 107 Steven Picanza!
