Kaleigh Moore and Paul Jarvis talk about all things related to the business of freelancing.
We’re talking clients. Pricing. Landing projects. Getting paid. Managing revisions (endless revisions). Finding clients and connecting with them in a way that feels right for you. If you’re like most freelancers, it’s the business stuff that keeps you awake at night, not the actual writing, programming or designing. That’s where the Creative Class podcast comes in.
Kaleigh and Paul have over 20 years of combined experience freelancing with some of the biggest names and companies in the world, including: Microsoft, Yahoo, Mercedes-Benz and their work has been featured in: Wired, Fast Company, LifeHacker, USAToday, Newsweek and more.

Two of the best in the biz
Kaleigh and Paul are two of the best freelancers I’ve met. This is a must listen for all freelancers and it is great bingeworhty show
More Moore, Less Paul Please
How do you know a person is who they are? They’ll status signal within the first two minutes. Jarvis proclaims much here, me thinks we can all do without the self proclaimed life of perfection and endless banter of a braggart.
Moore is fine, far better solo in 2020.
