Justin Bridges on Feeling Free to Fail The Freelance Founders Podcast

    • Entrepreneurship

The scariest part of leaving a 9 to 5 and going freelance is the loss of that corporate safety net that so many of us cling to. While taking the leap might not be comfortable, the freedom we feel once we’ve stuck landing is worth every bit of anxiety. 
Welcome to season two of the Freelance Founders podcast. On our first episode back, we’re talking to Justin Bridges, a NYC based entrepreneur and fashion photographer originally hailing from Atlanta. He is the founder and CMO of travel start-up El Camino and the owner of Peach Studio, a photo and video rental studio in Queens.
Today, Justin tells us the advice he’d give himself at 20 years old, how he works to set boundaries for himself, and even gives us some financial wisdom through the lens of a former Wall Street trader and current freelancer.
Some Questions asked:
What was your biggest adjustment going from a corporate atmosphere to freelancing? (03:58)What are three tips for freelancers who are looking to start preparing for their retirement? (09:19)Do you think the trend of remote workers going globally nomadic will continue to grow? (19:39)How did you approach your financial strategy when you decided to join your co-founder in El Camino? (33:57)What is one piece of advice you have for anyone who is starting their own company or looking to be a co-founder? (35:53)
In This Episode, You Will Learn:
