Or listen here:
Could you or would you move across country multiple times to advance your career?
Could you work from home everyday?
Could you run a business with your spouse?
Do you want to expand your income revenue streams?
Maybe you answered YES to some of these, or maybe you answered Heck No, to some of them. This episode will prove beneficial to any entrepreneur trying to make it as a freelancer and understand better how to market your skills and talents. Because that is exactly what Brad does.
This week I am excited to introduce you to Brad Woodard, a retro-inspired illustrator and designer that I have admired for a long time. I finally got to meet Brad (super super nice guy) at Creative South this past year. His work is full of fun, life, and nostalgia. He and his wife Krystal have built a successful business made of multiple income streams.
This episode will dig into what you need to know about the industry to not underbid yourself as an illustrator. Also how being flexible enough to move has opened up opportunities for Brad and his family.

My favorite way to build websites is with the Elegant Themes Divi theme. Talk about making custom web design easy. It is the only theme I need. Based off of a grid system and now with a visual builder, you can now customize your website super easy with this wordpress theme. I build all my sites with the Divi Theme which allow me to create custom sites that use business strategy specific for that client and my design knowledge to build an easy to use and update website for my clients. Elegant themes puts out tutorials and are always updating the theme to make it more robust and easier to use. You can pay per year or do what I did and do the lifetime membership at $250 then you can put it on as many websites as you want.

Audible has changed my business and my life. I listen to more books than I physically read nowadays. I listen when I workout, when I mow and I have a long commute. I have been able to listen to books during those times and these books and this app has really helped my business grow. I have the gold membership, I get a new credit each month for less than $15 (1 credit = 1 book). Often the price of the subscription is significantly less than the price of the book I am purchasing. I have been a member since 2010 and LOVE it.
