Updated: Mar 9
Welcome to the Podcast
Welcome to the Waking Up From Work Podcast and thank you for joining us on getting to work making work a passion. My name is Dave Swillum and I’m so happy to have you here with me.
This is a podcast that does interviews and discussions about entrepreneurs, small businesses, freelancers and DIY lifestyles. It’s about making a career and life what you want it to be, not what you we think it needs to be.
Help us build a community of people looking to better themselves by seriously pursuing their passion with action in order to make it a reality instead of a dream. Candid conversations, deep dives into the process behind the scenes of successful people, and real thoughts on finances, mentality, spirituality, relationships, comfort, fear, and all the factors and actions going into taking the leap and taking it seriously. Time to go to work living full time. Let's get ready to hustle!
My name is Dave Swillum. I grew up in southern New Hampshire and have been playing percussion most of my life. I’ve played in a pretty fair range of genres including marching bands, symphonic bands, percussion ensembles, hardcore, punk, indie and other random projects. I graduated from Plymouth State University in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in Audio & Music Composition and will be completing my MBA with concentration in music business partner program with SNHU and Berklee in December 18’. I opened up my audio production company Crawlspace Audio in late 2016 and have been working to grow the business ever since. Working a full time sales job, running the side hustle, playing in bands, doing school, and attempting to be a good husband and friend in the meantime has been a challenge but my wake up began and I can’t stop it now!
