[0:14] So tell me, what does freelancing mean to you?

[1:04] What was it like when you were getting started? What made you want to even try freelancing?

[1:43] But why freelance and not doing full-time work?

[2:13] What do you think it takes to become a freelancer? Not necessarily a successful one, but to just become one in general.

[2:57] Do you need to know business in order to become a freelancer?

4:09] Can you make a lot of money freelancing?

[4:47]. What do you think about pricing? How do you charge clients?

[6:49 What are your thoughts? Do you need to be a good sales person when freelancing?

[7:19] How do you promote yourself? How do you get all that work?

[8:27] How do you still connect with people, when you’re all alone (sometimes) as a freelancer?

[9:02] How much of an important role did San Francisco play in becoming a successful freelancer for you?

[9:27] What made you go back full-time this time?
