Quotes from this Episode: 

“Same way in Podcasting you can be a superstar in smaller markets.” – David Hooper

“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.” – David Hooper 

“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.” – David Hooper
