Show Notes

PT 2: Our conversation took place in March and is split into three parts – in this second mini episode, we talk about what it's been like to produce over 200 episodes of his podcast over the years, treating his work like a client, collaborating with others and why there's never a downside to being yourself in business.

Steve Folland is a parent, video and audio creator and the founder of Being Freelance. The next episode covers what he wishes someone would have told him before becoming a freelancer and parent and what he hopes the future holds for his kids.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT: 

  • Getting over the fear of public speaking in video or audio formats
  • The importance of practice and valuing your audience's time
  • What it's been like to produce over 200 episodes of the Being Freelance Podcast and win an award with Frankie Tortora of Doing It For The Kids Podcast
  • Enjoying what you do and finding the value in it
  • Treating yourself and your work like a client
  • Creativity as a form of self-care 
  • Bringing his whole self to work

Thanks to Steve for speaking with us about parenthood and adapting his business during the pandemic!

This podcast is the result of my journey over the past five years bringing my kids into business settings, hosting parent-friendly professional development events and during these times, it's my creative attempt to continue connecting you with industry leaders and guest experts who also happen to be parents.
