    Is Upwork Legit? + What You're Losing by Not Hiring

    Is Upwork Legit? + What You're Losing by Not Hiring

    On today’s show, we have a nice long chat with Carl Smith. He’s been an in-house web developer for the past 20 years, but at the end of 2018, Carl finally launched a small business of his own—L&L Web Consulting.
    Carl saw some early success on Upwork, but when one client who was taking up 50 hours of his work-week suddenly halted their project, Carl was left wondering if sites like Upwork were the best way to get web design clients.
    In the first half of today’s episode, we talk all about Upwork—should you be on it? Is it a good long-term strategy? And is it worth your time?
    Then we round out the show with a great conversation on hiring a marketing expert, When is the right time to hire? How can you find the right person? And ideas for what to do if you literally have no budget for hiring but desperately need help.

    Why You're Failing at "Finding a Niche"

    Why You're Failing at "Finding a Niche"

    On today’s episode, we sit down with Margaret Ryland, a brand and identity designer who started her own design business not very long ago.
    Margaret is working hard trying to figure out exactly what kind of client to target which has left her listening to and reading a lot of advice about finding your freelance niche.
    Advice to "find your niche" in business is not uncommon on the Internet—you’ve probably seen it yourself. We've even published our own articles about it.
    But Clay and I worry that Margaret is rushing into niching down a little too fast. So in today’s conversation, we dissect why “find your niche” really isn’t all it’s cracked up to be—and what freelancers should be doing instead.
    We also talk about demanding full creative control from clients, ditching proposals, listing prices on your website, weeding out high-maintenance clients and lots more.

    Building a Business vs. Creating Another Job

    Building a Business vs. Creating Another Job

    Too many freelancers never actually build a business that works for them. Instead, they just build another job for themselves—trading one annoying boss for a dozen high-maintenance clients. Eesh.
    In today's episode, we sit down with Bobby Macey, founder of Macey Media. After side-hustling through a series of frustrating lay-offs, Bobby finally decided to take matters into his own hands and start a content agency.
    He’s doing a lot of things right and his business is growing fast.
    But Bobby still finds himself doing a lot of the client work he books—leaving him with late nights on his laptop and a work-life balance that’s a bit uneven.
    In today’s show, Clay and I share what we’ve learned about work-life balance and help Bobby answer important questions about when to hire and who to hire to best scale his business and rescue some of his personal life.

Reviewer T22 ,

Interesting guests but interviewer makes too many assumptions

I only listened to one of the recent podcasts. While I liked the topic and guest, the interviewer kept putting words and assumptions into the guest‘s mouth instead of just asking and listening. This made me unsubscribe right away.
