One of the regular podcasts I listen to is Ruby Freelancers. Sure it’s got Ruby in the name, but it’s way more about freelancing than it is about Ruby.
In Episode 28, they had Sammy Larbi on who is a relatively new freelancer. They talked a bunch about rates, clients asking for cost reductions, marketing. All the stuff you wish you knew when you started freelancing.
Whether you’re thinking about freelancing, just starting, or been at it for years it’s a good podcast. Go listen to episode 28, and stay around for the next few.
