We have a special guest on Thrivecast for this episode—and it's a voice you'll recognize if you joined us at Deeper Weekend last year. J.Dew is a well-known emcee around Greenville, and we're stoked to have him back for #DW22. He joins us on the Thrivecast to discuss what the life of an emcee is like behind-the-scenes and draw some parallels with entrepreneurial firm owners. Jason and J. Dew walk through Deeper Weekend and how the two of them came together to create an experience that catered to attendees, not speakers (for once). Give this podcast a listen to get an idea of how Deeper Weekend comes together, starting with signing a stellar emcee. Sign up for Deeper Weekend to hear J.Dew: https://bit.ly/3prdG9h
