    Escaping One-Time Projects

    Escaping One-Time Projects

    On today’s show, how do you escape the trap of one-time projects and convince your clients that they need what you have to offer on a repeat basis?

    That’s part of the hurdle Aurelie faces as she aims to grow her 3-year-old freelance business. 
    Aurelie has worked with some huge clients like Wendy’s and the United Nations. 
    But almost all of her work has been on one-time projects. 

    Which naturally has its limitations.

    So we walk Aurelie through a few options for building repeat client work into her business in order to make her company more scalable and predictable. 
    It all starts right now on Freelance to Founder. Here we go.

    Trapped

    On today’s show: do you ever feel trapped by the decisions you make in your business?
    Our guest Morgan loves to write. But, early on, she took on quite a few social media clients. Then, those clients referred more clients. And suddenly, most of her client work is focused on social media marketing — not writing.
    So what do you do when your former choices have boxed you into a future you don’t necessarily want?
    It’s all on today’s episode of Freelance to Founder. Here we go…

Approchable

I’ve been listening to this show for a couple of years and it’s been key to improving my business. The hosts are excellent. Both Preston and Clay are experienced, reasonable, and inquisitive. It generates colorful conversations across several industries. I’m better and my business is better because of this show.

Drives me insane

I would listen to this show a lot more if the show info appeared at the top of the page when I clicked on it in my Apple Podcasts. Unfortunately, the most recent show is always at the bottom! This is the only podcast that does it that way and I’m not a fan of scrolling!
