About the podcast

Early 2018, creative directors duo Paul Bakker and Jeroen de Korte launched creative agency And Now This. But how do you actually start a creative business? What are the watch-outs? What does it take to quit your job and get your own company up and running?


For aspiring creative entrepreneurs, any nugget of advice you can get from someone who's been there before is like gold. Naturally, Paul and Jeroen started talking to the people who came before them. But instead of keeping that valuable information to themselves, they wanted to share it with the global creative community. 

In the podcast, hosts Paul and Jeroen talk to founders of successful and inspirational creative agencies and businesses around the world. To uncover their untold stories. 

The podcasts are recorded in English and Dutch and released monthly.
