    #42: Quality Matters

    #42: Quality Matters

    Here's the story. Ashley and Paddy recorded an episode of the show for this week, but realised afterwards that it wasn't quite up to their standard. Instead of just releasing it anyway, they ditched it and recorded a new episode on why quality matters. They discuss how difficult it can be to maintain quality in a project many weeks or months after it launches, and how you're only as good as the last piece in your portfolio. Enjoy!

Big time motivational ear candy!

This is a really top notch podcast, seriously if you arent subscribed to this you should be.

Since going freelance myself - i’ve found this podcast more reassuring, and informational - more so than the other freelance web show(s).

This podcast has made me work on side projects and really focus about future plans for my company - which other podcast makes you do that?

Uplifting

I’ve been listening to their podcast from episode one and it is amazing. I love hearing them both share their experiences whether that be high or low and how they push themselves to be better. I always feel refreshed ready to apply it to my own projects after each episode.
