In this episode of the Make Creativity Pay Podcast, I talk to Live Music Producer Tom Jackson. Tom works with mega-stars like Taylor Swift and Lacrae helping them prepare for touring. But his passion is helping creatives at all levels to make a great living (including bloggers, podcasters, performers, teachers, and more). He’ll be the first to tell you that putting those shows together is not nearly as important as changing both artists’ and disadvantaged women’s and children’s lives through charity sponsorship programs.
