S03 Episode 5: Building Trust Through Roadmapping with Lionel Martin
When you shop for anything, check with the business owners and ask, “How’s business going?” They will be happy to share their thoughts. Roadmapping involves interviewing and understanding a client to identify their needs and craft a solution for them. Take care of and protect your clients to develop successful and reliable results.
My guest today is Lionel Martin, a software and DevOps engineer who helps technology startups improve how they build using the Cloud. As a freelancer, he experienced the income and project roller coaster, which was very stressful. Lately, he has been doing high-value consulting. Lionel shares tips he has implemented that may benefit your company. Tactics he uses that are game changers to make a good impression on clients and get them to pay him more include being more descriptive rather than prescriptive and not having a portfolio.

S03 Episode 3: How Meteoric Growth Impacts Sales with Drew Sanocki
Advisors lead by developing a trusted relationship with prospects. This takes out a lot of traditional pitching for business and transitions to paid connections. You become more of a consultant than just a hired gun.
Drew Sanocki and Michael Epstein are partners at Growthengines.io, which has grown from being brand new to generating $1 million in revenue in less than a year through retainer work. How has it gone from nothing to where it is at now in such a short period? What impact does that have on the way that it sells?
S03 Episode 2: Why Roadmapping is a Priority with Matty McLain

My guest today is Matty McLain, who works for small companies and startups to help them tighten their sales process and get clients. What keeps business owners up at night and bothers them? Matty looks inside the businesses and determines how to make them better.

S02 Episode 6: Drip Automation Software with Dustin Robertson

Awesome show, highly recommend!

I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is my all-time favorite. Brennan delivers great content and fantastic guests.
Get the mindset needed to accomplish your deeper goals.
I have been listening through the entire series of Double Your Freelancing and getting overwhelmed with quality advice. I am planning on going back and re-listening to different interviews when I get to each part of my business. So far my favorite episode has been Brennan interviewing Sean D'Souza. I promptly went out and purchased the Brain Audit that day.
Brennan's interviews are like a curated list of service providers that help with a specific part of my freelance business. I can't recommend listening to this podcast if you are just getting started in freelancing (and I assume someone who has been around 10 years will find tremoundous value in this podcast as well.)
