Exactly what is needed in this industry
So many creatives try to run their own business, or start a small agency, only to give up after a while and look for a traditional job. The problem is never with their skills as a creative, but often with their ability to manage the business processes. From positioning your company to acquiring the RIGHT clients, down to how to successfully follow-up after a project, the creative business podcast is a needed voice in the creative community.
If you are a freelancer or agency owner, you need to listen!
If you are a freelancer or agency owner, you need to listen to The Creative Business Podcast. During each episode you will find tons of practical real-world advice about how to better manage and run your creative business. Not just philosophy and high level concepts, we're talking things you can apply right away. I stumbled on the podcast when researching proposal software and I'm glad I did, because I have been listening since the first one and look forward to each new episode.
