A262 - A podcast for freelancers

3/13/2019
As we embark on the second year of Ask Rezzz, the format will change up slightly. The reason for this is so that you can take action. I'm all about that action taking as you know. Having a show each and every single day without a doubt can be overwhelming. You may already have a backlog of shows that you want to listen to. Maybe there's a bunch that you don't have any interest in hearing as well. With that, the new format will be this. Every Friday, you'll be a fly on the wall for a...

A261 - One year in, what's the next 5 look like?

3/11/2019
Chris Bintliff from Not Really Rocket Science, is someone who I met through Twitter, but someone I consider a friend.

During a conversation one day, Chris mentioned that if there was ever an opportunity in which I myself could be interviewed, rather than me doing the interviewing, he wanted...

A260 - How to unexpectedly delight clients?

3/8/2019
I was introduced to Chris Martin through a friend of mine Joe Workman. How do I know Chris? I've heard a few of his shows before in the past and when Joe mentioned that I should reach out to Chris to be on his podcast, Getting Work to Work, for me it was a no brainer. Chris was a great interviewer, genuinely curious, asking things that to be honest, I hadn't been asked about before. One topic that we talked about most was personalization and delight. I talk about personalization a lot,...

A258 - Is Instagram a better vehicle for visibility? Sales?

3/6/2019
Inside of the Sustainable Freelancer someone asked a question that I've never answered directly in the previous 257 episodes of the show. This is a great question for a lot of people thinking about how to use social media for their business. Simply put, I don't like saying this, but it applies. The answer is, it depends. I'm going to put aside the paid ads on the platform because that's a different game altogether and really just stick to answering the question in the context of organic...
