Freelance Heroes

Steve Folland and Frankie Tortora are two heroes of mine, for all they give to supporting freelancers around the world. They run their own communities, podcasts, book clubs, and more and, in this episode, I felt it was time to get to know them a bit better. What made them set up their own communities? How does it help them and their members? What have been their own highs and lows of their freelancing journey? These questions and more are chatted about and more. About Steve Folland Steve is a video/podcast producer, running his business whilst also looking after his two kids.
