413 - Sean Mort’s American Summer Vacation A Epic Podumentary Part 1

Sean Mort gets out of the UK faster than they can leave the EU for some sunnier weather and his International Bromance partner in crime, Mark Brickey, is there to pick him up and push him to the limits. In the first part of this Epic Podumentary Sean and Mark get into some hijinks and then really kick things into gear when its time to make some money at Renegade Craft Fair. Don't miss booth strategies and pricing models form both Sean and Dan (wazzup!) of DKNG Studios with full explanations from their personal experiences and engaging retail strategies they've learned over the years. This episode takes you all over Los Angeles from LAX to Grand Park to Mark's home studio!
