    How to focus your attention and make progress as a freelancer

    Most freelancers have a lot of ideas and feel pulled in different directions when it comes to their businesses. Do I launch a productized service? A course? A new type of service? The reality is: You don’t have limitless time and energy. You need to focus. In this episode, we get into why rather than half-assing a bunch of things, you should “whole-ass one thing,” to quote Ron Swanson from the show Parks and Recreation.

Great motivation!

I love the chill but practical way that Kaleigh and Paul do this podcast. It will motivate you even if you have a regular job but have to be creative at work.

The voices in my head that keep me going <3

I went freelance 6 month ago - When I’m struggling or up against a big question like “where am I taking my business, should I hire employees, how should I be saving money for rainy days” I go for a walk and plug into the creative class podcast and let Paul and Kayleigh tell it how it is. This is such a great format for freelancer life advice, you guys are the best!
