The lockdown has made it difficult for Jamie to get in the studio so it’s David and Joey on the podcast again. We’re talking about the growth of our business and how Viddyoze is doing but we’re also talking about what success can do to your mental health. We’ve gone through some ups-and-downs over the past couple years and it’s really taught us a few things about what success means to us, what we want from ourselves, what money can do to a person, and about our relationships with recognition and money.

As always, if you liked this episode of Just 3 Clicks, please share it with a friend who you think would enjoy it as well.

“When you’re working your ass off to try and get somewhere, you’re like, I want to get to this stage, I’m going to buy this. I want to get to this stage, I’m going to do that. When you eventually feel like you’ve got there, you do all that stuff and then you think that’s it. I just felt I’m always going to grow my business..” – David Chamberlain

“When you do a million in a month, when you’re going $200,000, the growth is five times, the business grows faster than you and you can’t manage something that is growing faster than you.” – David Chamberlain

“You learn to tolerate things differently, too. We can pretty much agree on that. Our level of patience has probably diminished over time.” – Joey Xoto
