How do I know Steve Folland?
Steve Folland is a creative video and audio freelancer and host of Being Freelance podcast.
This was an awesome experience chatting with Steve because I’ve been a listener of his podcast for quite a long time. So I felt a bit like “long time listener, first time caller” at first. Which for me is a bit strange because I don’t normally feel that way.
I was having a chat with him through the comments of one of Steve’s vlogs on YouTube and asked him if he had any room for a guest and he graciously invited me on.
In this episode, I had a chance to talk about the following:
“I’ve reached my goal, what’s next?”
In case you don’t want to read the rest of this, you can check out the full episode for all the details.
In the episode, I shared a variety of things including:
- The number one reason for me to freelance in the first place
- How I learned HTML back in the 90s that I don’t recommend anyone ever doing
- 3 stories of my life, 2 of which are true and one is a lie
Specifically, I talk about my biggest hurdle when starting my own business. It was a scary time for sure, but with some self-awareness and support, I came through it.
The main takeaways from this show are:
- Setting up processes with the goal of sustainability in mind
- How I can help
Definitely go check it out.
