Memorable Quotes:

  • “With freelancing, you don’t need a crowd, you don’t need a social media following. You just need a client, or 2 or 3, to make a full time income…”
  • “When you’re doing a service… it doesn’t stop after you get the client. You have to show up and deliver and continue serving them.”
  • “I talk about searchable content but it doesn’t mean non-searchable video content isn’t relevant, either.”
  • “I wind up creating content around my content to drive people into that funnel so that they ultimately find my paid products.”
