In previous podcasts, I have had the opportunity to speak with industry professionals about their career journey, experiences and struggles, and how they were able to achieve their current position in life.
However, about a month ago, Mike Yakovlev, an avid listener and student from the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design, reached out to me and enthusiastically proposed something a bit different.
