In this episode we talk to Jonathan Rand from American Chillers. Jonathan has made a life for himself by being a self-published author of children’s books. We talk about what it takes to be an entrepreneur and how he was able to overcome him critics. Much of the advice is equally valuable for those wanting to start a business in any market.
