Freeeup Interview: How I Fell Into Freelancing, Wrote The Book, & My Current Freelancing Challenges

Disclosure: As an affiliate of Freeeup, I receive a commission if you sign up for their services.

In may, Connor Gillivan, Chief Marketing Officer at Freeeup, reached out to me about Path Of The Freelancer. As a result of our discussion, I became a customer (through one of my clients), and an affiliate of their business for finding quality freelancers (a better alternative to Upwork for small business owners).

Their ecosystem is terrific for finding talent, while also enforcing standards similar to those outlined in the Path of the Freelancer book. Originally, I learned of Freeeup listening to the founder's (Nathan Hirsch) interview on the Freelance Transformation podcast here.

Five months have passed (that is how long the process of a written interview can take at times), and the blog post is now published. In this article interview, I explore the following questions about the freelance life and the book.

  • How did you get into freelancing?
  • What prompted you to start a freelance business?
  • What was the inspiration behind “Path of the Freelancer?”
  • How has publishing the book helped your freelance career?
  • What’s the hardest part of building a freelance business?
  • Do you have any advice for those who are just getting started with their freelance business?
  • If you could do it all over again, would you still go with freelancing?
  • What’s next for you in terms of business and life?

If these questions intrigue you, you can explore my comprehensive answers here.
