Freelance can be a grind. You often have too much work, or not enough. Negotiating, communicating and figuring out how to work with new teams and clients can take as much time as doing the actual work. There are tactical things you can do to be a more successful freelancer. But the big moves and financial jumps happen when you are proactive about the kind of freelance career you want and put your efforts into building it. In this talk, Aaron and Andrew will share the mindset changes they have learned to make over their three combined decades of freelancing and from creating the Mt. Freelance course and community.
