    Time for another interview. I interviewed Alexa Herasimchuk, the only second generation product designer (that I know of). She's a community manager and product designer from the Bay Area, currently working at Zendesk and running a YouTube account about her life as a designer in San Francisco. She shares stories about interview prep, career goals, and much more.

    #18 · Freelancing 101

    On this show we talk al lot about starting your own business, go build stuff, be creative. That seems like a good thing to do in these times, but how do you start freelancing? How do you define your rate? How do you get clients? To answer those questions I sat down with two amazing freelancers: Frederique Matti (https://frederiquematti.com/) and Stephen O’Neill (http://stev.ie/).

    #16 · Prototyping

    Are there any reasons not to prototype anymore? Are static screens and flows still enough, especially with tools like Framer and Figma, making it a lot easier than before.

    Tune in and listen to the panel discussion with:

    - Andrei Herasimchuk

    - David Bullock

    - Daan van Klinken ([Twitter.com/daanriver](https://twitter.com/daanriver)) from Flow Your Money ([https://flowyour.money](https://flowyour.money))
