What Have I Done???
Two very important announcements. Brace yourselves, because it’s going to be bittersweet.
Find Clients by Connecting the Dots | Josiah Mory
This episode is all about the most powerful ways you can go from employee to freelancer. Even if you don’t have any clients lined up. You can still make the freelance transformation with confidence as long as you’re willing to put in the effort.
Our guest today actually used my Freelance Start course in order to transform himself into a full-time freelancer. Josiah Mory helps store owners on Shopify improve their customer experience with customer research. But he wasn’t always a consultant. Josiah put in the work, made a few mistakes along the way, and now he’s sharing with us today every twist and turn he took on his path to becoming a freelancer!
Build an Agency Your Way | Mike Arnesen
The agency space may have a reputation for cultivating a negative atmosphere, but building an agency doesn’t have to be all bad. You just have to build your agency with intention, and that’s exactly what our guest on this episode is doing.
Mike Arnesen is a freelance analyst and SEO fanatic who just so happened to build his own agency called UpBuild. After a few bad experiences, he decided to take what he learned and apply it to a better business model. Now, he puts the mental well-being of himself and his staff before anything else. Mike shares how he learned from his mistakes and overcame the all-too-common tragic sins of professional agencies.
Minimalist Marketing | Kyla Roma
It’s time to stop overcomplicating lead generation. Your marketing strategy does not have to give you a migraine. There are ways to keep marketing simple, and we've got marketing guru Kyla Roma on the podcast today to show you how to do just that.
Kyla is a marketing and profit consultant who uses her minimalist marketing strategies to build an audience and attract clients. It’s all about playing to your strengths and finding a marketing strategy that works best for you and your ideal audience. We talk today about how you can harness your strengths and apply your unique skill set to a winning marketing campaign.
Keep Yourself, Your Clients & Team Accountable | Edmund Zaloga
We always talk about getting clients on this show, but the real work doesn’t actually start until you’ve signed them on. What do you do when you finally start that client project? How do you manage your time with all these deadlines? It’s no easy task managing all of the moving pieces.
Whether you work alone or with a team, project management is crucial to your success as a freelancer. If you want to work with clients effectively, then it’s best to recognize project management as a collaborative process.
Edmund Zaloga, founder of Responsify, knows about what can go wrong – and what can go right – when it comes to project management. Edmund shares with us on this episode how he learned to manage his projects and the technology that can make it all a little easier!
6 Figures Through Relationships & Hard Work | RJ McCollam
Before becoming a freelancer, RJ McCollam was fired from his job, evicted from his apartment, and even had his car repossessed. It took losing everything to inspire his motivation. Now, ten years later, he’s a successful web developer who’s guest spotting podcasts to share his experience with the rest of us.
RJ is talking today about building a freelance career from the bottom up. He taught himself how to build websites and used his skills to find a full-time job. That full-time career eventually led to his freelance transformation, and he’s sharing all the steps (and mistakes) he made along the way.
Advice from someone who has been there.
I listen to dozens of podcasts, FT is right up there with a must-listen. Solid advice from Matt and guests, great links to what has been discussed and high audio values. Matt's FT website is also worth looking at as there are plenty of actionable downloads like "Land Higher Paying Projects."
Why reinvent the wheel? Listen to FT. Take action!
I love this podcast. Awesome
Organized, insightful, immediately actionable
Of late, freelancing has lost its lustre. I've been wanting to up my game for some time, and I always thought that meant a pivot. I'm still debating on my course of action, but listening to Freelance Transformation, I realized I had more options than I thought I had available. Very much worth your time if you're looking to get more out of your work and your business relationships.
