Podcast episode 52: The Freelance Life with LP Hastings

The Freelance Life with LP Hastings on the Dear Handmade Life Podcast

Today on the Dear Handmade Life podcast we’re drinking The Bruery’s Guava Libre and talking with LP Hastings about the freelance life. The insight and advice we share in this episode applies not just to freelancers but to makers who sell products as well. We talk about having a safety net, how to know (and feel awesome about) what to charge for your services and products, knowing yourself and determining your ideal work schedule, productivity tips, how to find the right clients for your service or product (even in unlikely places), the myth of instant social media fame for you and your business and more. And… as usual we share some of our favorite TV shows that keep us company while we’re working.


Also, we’re giving away access to all four of our online workshops, a few bags of the custom-blended tea our friend Andy from Plum Deluxe created for Craftcation and one of the Craftcation gift bags which is stocked with goodies from our sponsors and partners! To enter just leave us a review on iTunes here. We’ll randomly pick a winner and announce them at the beginning of our July 6th podcast episode.
