On this episode of Turning Pro, Omar welcomes to the podcast skateboard customizer Bear Walker.

Bear comes from lower Alabama and has a woodworking/design background. Taking inspiration from surf, skate, and love for pop culture, Bear found opportunity in his art.

Bear shares how he turned a side hustle into a full-time job/career by staying making the necessary sacrifices to make his dreams a reality. He shares how he combined his graphic design skills with carpentry to create collectible art pieces that can also be ridden on.

Omar and Bear talk about the mind shift that happens when you go from doing something for fun to doing it as a full-time job.
