Valuable and honest discussion on matters of being focused and productive in the right ways.

They will encourage you to be thoughtful about how you conduct your work, organise your responsibilities and make the most effective use of your time (which could even be resting).
Great knowledge for would-be freelancers!
It's really good to hear from recently independent workers with plenty of tips and tricks and useful advice. Jason and David have already had some interesting guests on the show and although it is very US-centric, understandably, much of the advice is still great for folks from elsewhere too! While not a freelancer myself, it's great to get as much info as possible before I consider making the jump. Great work guys!
Great content but I think it could be improved if it was edited down a bit.
