Whatever it takes - Composer Grant Kirkhope

Great meeting place for freelancers
I kicked off my own freelance gig recently. Flying solo is undoubtedly a challenge and it can be a lonely place when you encounter problems - whether that’s pitching for work, pricing, chasing payments, etc. This podcast is a revelation. A meeting place for freelancers where you get to hear the incredibly valuable experiences of people who have chosen the same path as you. I’ve already picked up loads of tips - such as keeping a log book to honestly assess my work, setting stricter payment terms and being more organised in chasing down new business. I really couldn’t recommend this podcast enough to freelancers working in any sector. It’s amazing to hear how different personalities have the same insecurities, but are also incredibly proactive in building dynamic freelance businesses.
