Welcome back to the Financial Conversation Podcast!
On this week’s episode, we are discussing how we got started freelancing and tips for people trying to get started.
This is a topic we wanted to cover because it’s tough for people to get their business up and running.
Most of the time, it’s hard work balancing all kinds of different tasks while still managing family responsibilities. Plus, there is an issue with self-doubt that most freelancers have to overcome.
Transitioning to being your own boss sounds great, but it plays out differently in practice.
We were thrilled to be joined by our amazing mentor and freelance superstar, Catherine Alford, for this chat.
Cat is a fabulous mother to adorable twins, and with her husband in medical school, she runs a tight ship. She earned six figures in 2015 and was the perfect guest to have on to give a raw, unfiltered look into what it takes to be a successful, full-time freelancer.
In this episode we discuss:
- 3:00 – Reasons we became freelancers
- 10:30 – How we manage freelancing and life
- 24:00 – Our biggest challenges
- 38:45 – Our biggest successes
