Daily Routine

 

For Pattiz, no one day is the same. With his experience, he is able to involve himself with each and every aspect of the business. PodcastOne being such a small company allows him to keep a watchful eye on technology, talent, ad sales, acquisitions, and most other major departments within the business. He is a true jack-of-all-trades, and in his case, master of all of them.

 

Entrepreneurial Advice

 

Pattiz advises all entrepreneurs to read the trades of their industry. This will allow them to keep up-to-date with recent industry trends and the players who influence them. In these days, however, most trade publications have gone digital, therefore Pattiz advises every entrepreneur to dig a little deeper in order to extract the information they need to stay current and on the cutting edge.
