Until I did this interview with Laura Pennington, I didn’t realise just how lucrative starting your own freelance business could be.
In fact, I was shocked that it was common place for freelancers to be earning six figures.

Topics discussed during this podcast include;
- How much can you expect to earn as a freelancer?

Not only do freelancers earn 6-figures… you can make it a recurring billing business by choosing the right clients.
2. Spy on Your Competitors
If you’re struggling to pick up new clients because your competitors have been in the game longer, simply check out what they are doing, take notes, and make your offering better.
