The Freelance Podcast

The Freelance Podcast

Another podcast for freelancers? Yea, I know, but let me explain. Podcasts are an awesome way to learn from people that are where you want to be professionally and have the experience you can learn from. One thing I found is that some of the advice was a little beyond where I was at in my journey to make the jump to a full time freelancer. That is where The Freelance Podcast jumps in and tries to bridge the gap. I have talked with a lot of people that are in the position I was before I made the leap, working a full time job and freelancing on the side. The target audience for this podcast is those who are looking for advice and motivation to finally quit their job and focus 100% on what they love to do and why they freelance in the first place. I have been in your shoes and know the inspiration that a good podcast can have. This is not meant to be the best podcast for all freelancers, but instead is meant to be the best for those just getting started by giving real world advice and information that can be acted on immediately. Not advice that only works if you have a huge network of people or huge email list.

    035: Back to basics

    Sometimes you need to make sure you are taking all the noise coming your way and send it through your own personal filter. Never forget why you do what you do, and don't be afraid to stop other stuff so you can keep your foundation as a freelancer strong.

    034: Quick Proposals

    Freelancers shouldn't over think giving numbers and timeframes. In this episode I go over what your thought process should be in order to get the people who want to work with you the information they need.

    033: Stagnating

    Like the great white shark in the ocean, if a freelancer stops moving forward they die.

    031: Perception

    Perception is such a powerful thing, and perception on your end as well as your clients will dictate how your relationship and projects go.

    028: Check your ego

    I'll keep this short. You aren't always right about everything and instead of being a jerk about use it as an opportunity to educate your clients.

    027: Scheduling

    Scheduling can be really tough to get good at as a freelancer, and the last situation you want to find yourself in is one where you are buried in projects and missing deadlines. In this episode of The Freelance Podcast I go over how I think about scheduling projects and also give a framework for new freelancers to use so they don't overbook themselves.

    026: Side Project

    As a full-time freelancer that works from home it can be super hard to turn off work most times. I have found that side projects and hobbies allow me to recharge and come back to my work refreshed.
