Vulnerability & Writing the Story of Our Life With David Ebner

In this Inspirational People interview on the Share Life podcast, I'm speaking with David Ebner. David is the founder of Content Workshop and advisor of Copywriter Exchange.

David and I met through our mutual participation in a shared small group community of marketers that spawned out of the Atlanta Hubspot user group. We collaborated when I presented a Path of the Freelancer webinar about building a steady stream of paying clients for the Copywriter Exchange.
