"Somehow, everything works together. I can still be a business person and be in music and I would never have thought that balance could be a reality." - David Andrew Wiebe

This week’s interview is with David Andrew Wiebe from DAWCast.com a musician, songwriter, podcaster and music entrepreneurship educator. David grew up in Japan but moved back to Canada for high school where he started playing guitar. Since then he has gone from playing 3 hours a day to just sometimes. Spent 12 years pursuing music as a career only to give it up to pursue more traditional entrepreneurial endeavours. But has recently found that the two paths are combining to create his current path. 

We talk about balancing creating for yourself vs creating for others, the challenges of collaboration and how being in a band is like being in a marriage.
