In our first full episode hosts Aaron James and Andrew Dickson welcome Strategy Director and School of Ideas founder Lisa Prince to kick off the Mt. Freelance podcast. Lisa spent a decade working at Wieden+Kennedy, working her way up to Global Group Strategy Director providing guiding insights and ideas on accounts like Old Spice, American Express and Proctor and Gamble. She left to spend a year “doing nothing” which led to starting The School of Ideas, her business that helps brands and agencies use strategy and insights to come up with big creative ideas. Lisa is smart, fun and her interview is a must listen for freelancers considering doing business as a business instead of in their own name, creatives struggling with financial planing, or anyone looking for ideas, insights and solidarity on their freelance path. What’s Mt. Freelance? It’s online the course and community that helps freelancers in the creative industry get the work they really want, charge what they are worth and build the freelance business they dream of. Co-founders Aaron and Andrew end each episode by answering a listener question about freelance. The Mt. Freelance podcast is hand-crafted by the producers, mixers and sound designers of Digital One, right here in Portland Oregon, and sponsored by Stumptown Coffee.
