One thing that’s really important to talk about as freelancers, is how to avoid the feast or famine mindset. Many people believe freelancing is more of a side hustle where you are landing one-off jobs and then constantly having to look for new work. But, we can’t make a living from freelancing if we are not setting our business up in a way that allows us to bring in a consistent income, month to month, and avoid the highs and lows from client turnover.
This is why I love podcast management! When a host decides to start a podcast, they are in it for the long game. And when they are hiring a podcast manager, they have the same mindset. They are looking for a long term relationship. As freelancers, we want consistent working hours and a consistent income that we can rely on. So that’s what we’re going to talk about today!
If you want to chat more about the feast or famine mindset, I would love to continue this conversation with you, over on Instagram!
