People say Time is Money, but I say Time is Time - Podcast with Stage 32 CEO Richard "RB" Botto

Posted by Taylor C. Baker
Recently, Stage 32's fearless leader Richard "RB" Botto sat down for a conversation with Jordan Brady, director, and host of the podcast Respect the Process. 
In RB's episode, he dishes out honest and inspirational advice about the entertainment industry and the pursuit of creative and entrepreneurial endeavors. 

A Few Highlights: 

  • "Most people say 'Time is Money', but I say 'Time is Time'" - You can always get money back, you cannot get time back. Pay attention to how you spend your time. Are you toiling away fantasizing about other people's amazing careers? Or are you actually working towards making your own career and connections amazing and rooted in authenticity?
  • The difference between crowdfunding and crowdsourcing - Why you should build an army of support for your brand or project through crowdsourcing. Offer something of value to your audience, don't just constantly ask for something.
  • "There are a million roads into the business - no one has the same story. But there is only one road out and that is quitting"
