James’ advice if you’re looking to take on physical jobs out on the road.
“I was really nervous. I was kinda scared about it… I’ve been shocked. As long as you’re willing to work by yourself and make contacts, it’s really actually easy to fund yourself out on the road.”
“Really, it’s just sticking to your guns and applying yourself. And a lot of times you’d be surprised. It’s not like you have to kill yourself to really build that good reputation.”
