As a freelancer, you are probably juggling a million things at once.
Unlike many other jobs, you have to deal with marketing your services, invoicing, and all of the work you need to turn in to your clients.
This can leave little time to pursue other interests, one of which is probably how to better your career.
Well, we have the answer for you. Podcasts!
Podcasts are a great way to learn new information without having to change your schedule or try to find more time in your already busy day.
Podcasts can help you discover new tools that can help you run your business better as well as get inspiration from the success (and struggles) of other freelancers.
