If you're a woodworker, you're going to love this episode! We talk with Morgan Hop (shortened because we can't spell or pronounce his full last name). Morgan is the content director for Microjig, a world leader in woodworking tools. He creates all the content, from packaging, social media, instructional and product videos, and YouTube content. If you've seen anything Microjig, then you've probably seen Morgan. From his humble beginnings as a model to his transition to a one man videography crew, we learn a little behind the scenes of what it takes to create content from a company perspective.
This is our first episode with the 4th guest via Zoom. Unfortunately, Covid affects us all. Be safe friends!
