The first 50 pages of ‘How to get a mentor as a designer, guaranteed’ by Ram Castillo for free [AUDIO BOOK VERSION]

September 29, 2016

Welcome to episode #33 – this is a little different to all the other episodes in the past. I've not yet done a solo episode, as I haven’t had a good reason to, until now. 

If you're a first time listener, usually I have a conversation with one expert guest and attempt to dissect their story, the lessons they have learnt along the way and the advice they would give to their younger self.

However, it’s time to mix things up, and what better way to do so than to pair the release of my second book; How to get a mentor as a designer, guaranteed, with the first 35 minutes of my audiobook version! which equates to the first 50 pages of the 200 page book.

The entire audio book version goes for about 2 hours 10 minutes and I thought I'd give you a solid amount as a sample here for you to base your thoughts on it incase you were looking to grab a copy.

I also took the liberty of reading it out in my own voice to hopefully add greater authenticity and connection with you. And let me tell you, that was my first time recording an audio book in a professional studio and man do i empathize with voice over artists. It's definitely not as easy as it may seem.

So here we go, I present the first 50 pages of my second book; How to get a mentor as a designer, guaranteed – in audiobook format... enjoy!
