David Hooper Quotes from this Episode: 

  • “Same way in Podcasting you can be a superstar in smaller markets.”
  • “I just assumed everybody knew who’s possible to make a living with your ideas, creativity, put you on a show and people come to it.”
  • “Bringing you own personality, the things that you have learned along the way but not being afraid to have an opinion and share it. I think if you are bringing that into your Podcast, it don’t have to be an act just has to be you; that is going to help you to attract people.”
