Conversations with modern workers about freelancing, the reality of self-employment, the highs, lows and bits in-between of working for yourself.

We ask a simple question each week: "How are you?" and explore the answer.

Enlightening truthful stuff

Honest and engaging conversations. And a fantastic aural representation of the brilliant Leapers community.

Great podcast

I found the podcast after following Leapers on Twitter and I’m glad I’ve had a listen.

Working alone or running your business remotely is lonely and it’s hard work. It’s not always easy to jump on the phone or crack on with work when you’re suffering from depression or going through a bad time. Hearing from others is reassuring knowing that I’m not alone and there are no end of others in similar situations.

This is like a free therapy session. Thank you Matthew, keep up the good work.

Great support for freelancers

Lovely listening to these pods. Great support if you have gone out on your own and shows how your experiences and thoughts are not strange or indeed unique.

Some great little nuggets and ideas about how to deal with stress and that it’s ok to share.
