Aaron Dowd, better known as The Podcast Dude, has grown up with an attitude of “I do what I want,” and I’m willing to bet there are many more of us out there. It hasn’t all been smooth sailing though, but Aaron has figured out how to succeed while still living on his own terms.

In this episode we hear his story of how he found his passions, got lost for a while, then had a few revelations that have paid off big time. He is a great example of how to pay the price of success, because as we all know by now, there’s ALWAYS a price to be paid.
