Jared said about the reason he started a podcast:
“I have this large following on YouTube, so I thought I might as well exploit that in the way of filming podcasts because not a lot of people film their podcasts.”
”People can see fake from a mile away but people will stay engaged with genuinely honest and real people like me.”
”My goal is to bring you fun and informative content that keeps you coming back for more.”
”I will just say learn from your mistakes, continue to grow and try to let the past go as much as possible.”
”We all have regrets, though they never will go away you must learn from them and change.”
”It’s all about quality, it’s all about interactions with your readers and it’s all about being real, honest and personal.”
”I can’t tell you how to get that feeling but I can tell you, you will know when you did.”
Jared has taken photos as a certified concert photographer of Matisyahu (real name – Matthew Paul Miller), live and in concert.
