Awesome freelance advice: What 38 freelancers would tell their younger selves
I’ve interviewed over 140 freelancers now for the Being Freelance podcast, and each episode ends with the same question:
“If you could tell your younger self one thing about being freelance, what would that be?”
That’s a whole lot of advice that I’ve collected over the years, and it’s advice that’s coming from the best possible source: personal experience.
The following insanely useful quotes are from Season 5 of the podcast (yeah, just one season!) So if you enjoy these do yourself a favour, hit subscribe wherever you get your podcasts and go back and listen! Don't let your older self answer the same question by saying 'I wish I'd gone back and listened to all of the Being Freelance podcast sooner!'
So, let’s kick things off with some of the more practical advice we’ve been given, shall we
SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
GOALS AND PLANNING
WORKING WITH CLIENTS
BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF
So there you have it!
That's just one season's worth of the freelance podcast your older self would definitely recommend you subscribe to.
Freelance tips and wisdom straight from the source – from the freelancers who are out there gathering experience and giving things their best shot.
