The Six Figure Home Studio – Ep 27: Saving Over $3,000 Per Month By “Downsizing To Profitability”: Matt Boudreau’s Story

Episode outline: ‘If you had the chance to run your studio out of a fancy commercial facility designed by Bill Putnam, would you take it? Most of us would jump at the chance…but is this the right move?

Matt Boudreau was given this chance in 2007, and in this interview, you’ll hear how this quickly shifted from an opportunity of a lifetime, to one of the lowest points in his career.’
