Chris has insightful, authentic, and extremely helpful conversations with successful freelancers and asks then how they have achieved success so you can learn from them.
Years of experience, brought to bear...
Christopher has been freelancing for a long, long time, and has been in the industry even longer. I've seen him work magic on incredibly tough projects and conjure up business in abysmal market conditions. You may not agree with his opinions (they tend to be on the strong side), but I urge you not to ignore them.
Chris will definitely be added to my list of weekly podcast listening. His advice is actionable for freelancers in any field
