Hey Ladder Family,

I hope the month of August is treating you well thus far. As many of us gear up for the start of the new school year, now is a great time to revisit your annual freelance income goal and take a look at your Fall schedule to make sure you’ve carved out time in your schedule to find clients, pitch them, and follow up.

Learn more about how I went from 9 to 5pm to freelancer while raising children as a single mom. With over 63,000 downloads since launching in April this podcast should definitely be part of your regular business routine!
