Episode 269. Aired September 19, 2018.
This week I am excited to introduce you to my friend Josh Lewis. I got to meet him and hear his story at Creative South this past year. Again, I love going to conferences for the simple reason that you get to hear more and spend time with people you admire.
You might be thinking, what you do you mean, “hear more.” When face-to-face (virtually or physically) you are able to give people more of your time as opposed to commenting on a post or typing a private message. When I meet with people in-person or online I get to know them better, I hear their struggles and how they have made it through the tough patches. Josh will share some of these things with us this week.
Josh was working full time as a designer, but wanted to do more illustration work. He was able to go from full time with a side project to freelance and a lot of that had to do with his personal projects. Josh’s personal projects have lead him to clients again and again. He will talk about this as a strategy. I hope you will join us for this look into creating self-driven project and how that can lead to paying jobs that you will love.
