Stumbled onto "Being Freelance" a couple weeks ago, and it became a welcome companion on my morning walks. It is reassuring to hear how many people have been down the same road. I enjoy hearing about other people's routines, rituals, and successes. The guests are interesting, and Steve's natural curiosity keeps the conversation moving along.

Podcast cover
Read more

After struggling to find work after uni, with a year of bits, bobs and benefits, Kristian finally found the real benefits of a mentor, working for an established freelancer.

Now, he balances 2 jobs. One with a full time employer, the other: his freelance career. Kristian's experience of breaking out in to his freelance dream is full of ups and downs. Lots to learn. Oh. And a daredevil cat.

Here’s some of the key takeaway points:

  • network with your creative peers, they're not your competition
  • make the most of your location, you're surrounded by potential clients
  • don't be afraid to learn from a more experienced freelancer/business mind
  • stand up for yourself when seeking delayed payment

Rank #3: Don’t get mad, get better - Photographer Storm Santos

Podcast cover
Read more

After leaving high school in LA, where he was born and raised, Storm toured as a professional musician for five years before transitioning to photography.

When a friend passed on a lucrative job shooting for Nike, Storm knew right away that this what he’d keep doing. He soon found that the best gigs aren’t usually so easy to come by, and when a friend told him “Don’t get mad, get better”, it stuck.

Storm now has an agent and a substantial portfolio, and he’s working on jobs that give him lots of room for creativity.

And how does he keep the work coming in?

“If you can be cool to hang out with for 10 hours,” Storm says, “the 10% of talent is a plus."

Rank #4: Making Connections - Graphic Designer Amber Asay

Podcast cover
Read more

Working for agencies and studios as a graphic designer since 2012, Amber Asay hated that she couldn’t interact directly with her clients. She also couldn’t show off her work in a personal portfolio, since her creations were the intellectual property of her employers. Even if she could have, she didn’t take much pride in the type of corporate branding work she had been doing.

Now she’s connected to her clients and her peers, slogging away at it, but riding a high as she charts her own path.
She still doesn’t quite have a grasp of the work-life balance. Her work often is her life, but she has a plan...

Great thoughts on working a full-time job while growing her freelancing practice, connecting, putting your work out there and more.

Podcast cover
Read more

Both Franky and her husband are self employed. How do they make it work for their young family?

Hear how Franky's blog 'Love Audrey' gave her the confidence and the connections to go freelance, how she balances work and kids and why it's important to question what it really means to be successful. Pass the biscuits!

  • Franky tries to only work during the school day: the strict hours keep her focussed

  • Remember, you're not only networking at 'networking events, any time you meet someone could lead to work further down the line so first impressions count

  • Franky writes mainly within a niche of 'weddings', she did an internship within the industry and developed contacts

  • 95% of her work comes via word of mouth

  • Don’t adopt other people’s goals - there’s more than one definition of success; find your own

Rank #9: Etsy Bitsy Beginning - Branding Witch Kelly Brito

Podcast cover
Read more

Freelancing has enabled Kelly to work around her family doing something she loves. Starting by selling Wordpress themes on etsy, she now offers an evolving range of branding services in amongst a generous supply of free resources.

From Brazil to a noisy New York City, we hear her story. And a few sirens. And planes. Drowned out by passion for her business.

Love learning from other freelancers like this? Check out the website beingfreelance.com, subscribe to the podcast and to the newsletter.

Key Takeaway Points

  • Kelly began by selling wordpess templates on Etsy, people then started asking her to customise designs
  • She also has a shop on her own site so she can sell under her own brand and without fees
  • Using a company name helps her appear bigger: clients couldn't understand that one person could do design, code... etc - it makes people feel more secure buying from you
  • Kelly creates free resources like cue sheets, work books, templates that she gives away for free when guest posting on other blogs, on social and in the 'resources' section of her site
  • Sharing her free resources on Twitter brings people to her site where they stick around and see what else she does
  • Some clients discover her via Pinterest where all she does is shares things she's into, so her personality shines through
  • She's picky about what she shows on her portolio: only the work she wants to be known for, to attract similar clients
  • She outsources some work like coding but finds it hard letting go of control
  • She added photography to her services when she realised most stock photos weren't unique enough for her clients

Rank #15: From Russia With Linguistics - Illustrator Landysh Akhmetzyanova

Podcast cover
Read more

She trained as a Linguist. She worked as a Translator. She dreamt as an Illustrator. Eventually Landysh brought them together: co-founding Lingvistov, a Skype based language service which also allowed her illustrations to speak volumes in shouting about the business, so much so they've now become a product of their own.

She shares thoughts on collaborating to expand your ambitions, how to succeed in a business partnership and how they use content marketing to promote their business.

Don't forget to subscribe
via iTunes and the Podcast app for iPhone etc and also via Stitcher who have an Android app - If you like the podcast, please do leave a review if you get a chance. Thanks!

Here’s some of the key takeaway points:

  • Their business was born when a freelance marketplace site changed their conditions to take a bigger percentage of each job; Landysh and her partner decided they'd create their own site instead! Why be at the mercy of someone else?

  • When collaborating with others in business - be open and communicate; talk a lot about what you do and what you want to do

  • They don't have much marketing budget, instead they use content to pull people to their business as people share it: articles, videos, audio, cartoons

  • They have diversified their income; as well as the linguistic school and services, her illustrations are now available to buy in a range of products from their own shop

  • Don't feel you have to be 'normal' with a regular job, if you're passionate about something go for it, earn a living a from it

Rank #18: Remember why you started - Illustrator Martha Williams

Podcast cover
Read more

After studying Graphic Arts at uni and leaning towards the more experimental forms of art, Martha found herself working in an in-house graphic design role that left little room for creativity.

Now two years into her freelance career and living between England and Spain, Martha has built herself a flexible business where she has plenty of variety in her work.

And, more than that, Martha is now able to give herself time to work on her craft, scheduling in 5-day “holidays” where she’s free from client work and can focus entirely on her side projects.

“The idea was to become freelance so I could enjoy my life more and work on these areas that I wanted to work on,” Martha says.

Find out how she’s made that a possibility in this episode of Being Freelance.
