First launched in 2019, the Make Your Break podcast has come a LONG way (no pun intended).
What started as a creative outlet and personal passion has now become a source of transformative audio mojo for creatives seeking business and mindset liberation. For Jai, the podcast has opened so many new doors, giving him opportunities to interview other educators and entrepreneurs he’s personally looked up to.
Perhaps, more importantly, the promised release of weekly episodes has held Jai accountable for showing up consistently – no matter how busy or tired he is, no matter how out of control his personal and work schedule looks. Dishing up free education and motivation for an ever-growing community, this relentless commitment proves the importance of “community over competition” and lowering the ladder for those who are making their way up.
So, in celebration of wrapping up yet another mammoth year, here’s a recap of some of Make Your Break’s major 2023 highlights!
