Episode 26 : Meredith Burkholder
Meredith is the CEO, Founder, and Director of Webfest Berlin - a short-form series festival. Her love for short-form series is deep. In addition to running Webfest Berlin, she’s a consultant for short-form series, has written a book on short-form series, is producing a 1/2 hour series of her own and is planning a second webfest location in Asia. On this episode she tells us how she went from Texas to starting her own business ½ way around the world in a city she didn’t speak the language or know anyone. We talk about diversity and opportunity in the web series and podcast space, why it’s always a good idea to move abroad, and how ever expanding networks allow you to find the various keys to your dream life.
