Another podcast for freelancers? Yea, I know, but let me explain. Podcasts are an awesome way to learn from people that are where you want to be professionally and have the experience you can learn from. One thing I found is that some of the advice was a little beyond where I was at in my journey to make the jump to a full time freelancer. That is where The Freelance Podcast jumps in and tries to bridge the gap. I have talked with a lot of people that are in the position I was before I made the leap, working a full time job and freelancing on the side. The target audience for this podcast is those who are looking for advice and motivation to finally quit their job and focus 100% on what they love to do and why they freelance in the first place. I have been in your shoes and know the inspiration that a good podcast can have. This is not meant to be the best podcast for all freelancers, but instead is meant to be the best for those just getting started by giving real world advice and information that can be acted on immediately. Not advice that only works if you have a huge network of people or huge email list.

Rank #12: 023: Stop Romanticizing the hustle

Podcast cover
Read more

Show Notes:

The word HUSTLE has become both a great movement and a dangerous way to live your life. It can be so detrimental to the way you work when you compare yourself to others who you think are super successful and use hustle as an excuse why you are not there, or what you need to get there. Consistency is much more important and it is crucial you are honest with yourself and know what you want out of life and what you are capable of doing to get yourself there.
