Going All The Way Up With Keitsu - #66

This week on the Formula Podcast, Trevor Carlson sits down with Joel Sorenson, aka Keitsu.Keitsu is an entrepreneur who created several businesses that all started with his passion for breakdancing, but that didn’t come without trials from other ventures before finally finding his groove.
