Ep – 49 – Jonathan Pritchard – Enjoy Being Useless

Hey Photogs! It is your altruistic responsibility to photograph people and provide them with an emotional experience. But how do we get our clients hire us without manipulating or tricking them? Mike talks with Jonathan Pritchard, a professional mind reader, to give insight on how the human mind works and how you can sell yourself to others so you can persuade them to book you.
