Creative Class, a podcast for freelancers

By Kaleigh Moore & Paul Jarvis

Kaleigh Moore and Paul Jarvis talk about all things related to the business of freelancing. We’re talking clients. Pricing. Landing projects. Getting paid. Managing revisions (endless revisions). Finding clients and connecting with them in a way that feels right for you. If you’re like most freelancers, it’s the business stuff that keeps you awake at night, not the actual writing, programming or designing. That’s where the Creative Class podcast comes in. Kaleigh and Paul have over 20 years of combined experience freelancing with some of the biggest names and companies in the world, including: Microsoft, Yahoo, Mercedes-Benz and their work has been featured in: Wired, Fast Company, LifeHacker, USAToday, Newsweek and more.
