MWIE 018: Dan Franks (Is Offended)

From the time I was in junior high, I had a “side hustle,” though that term hadn’t been invented yet. First it was a paper route. Then a job at a shoe store. Then I turned my love for architecture into a drafting business. My high school actually paid me to skip study hall to go draw floor plans of the various buildings in our district.

In college, I picked up radio…and then voiceover and production gigs…and, most recently, public address jobs at sporting events. It’s actually a pretty sweet deal to get paid for your hobbies. Which certainly can’t be said for golf or fishing.

Dan Franks can relate. From building websites to podcast creation, Dan has frequently supplemented his job as a CPA with something technology-related.  And then in 2014, Dan Franks turned his “side hustle” into Podcast Movement…the biggest, baddest podcasting conference in the world. He’s such a show off.

Dan Franks is the co-founder of Podcast Movement, a conference for podcasters, by podcasters which expects 2,000 attendees at PM17 in Anaheim this year. Dan is also the business manager at Midroll, which helps great advertisers meet great podcasts.
