The Three Minute Podcast: Is freelancing for you?

Here we go with a second podcast. It’s only three minutes long – have a listen while you’re making yourself a tea!

This week, I’m talking about whether freelancing is for you, and looking at the following questions:

1) Can you afford it?

2) Will you be lonely?

3) Are you prepared to promote yourself?

4) Have you got a support network?

5) Do you have the time?

As much as I love freelancing, I know it’s not for everyone. Go with your gut feeling – and if you find it’s not for you, you can always go back to being employed!

Based on the podcast, do you think freelancing is for you?

    Love this idea for a podcast series – The Three Minute Podcast! You should have a podcast page up on your menu bar where you embed each one so people can easily find them to listen again :-)

    So pleased to see you podcasting!!!

    Very helpful podcast. I’m just getting started and surely don’t want to be lonely. Now I’m joining Business Biscotti as you’ve recommended, and yesterday I had a wonderful time at a meeting from a Meetup group of business entrepreneurs. Meetup is a fantastic place not only for freelancers, but for making friends in a new city and meeting people with the similar tastes and interests. Thank you for the podcast, once again. Can’t wait for the next one!
