In this episode, I go over the idea that people can't get started freelancing if they have no 'skills.' I first talk about why the concept of 'expertise' doesn't really exist, and I move into why you should just get started anyway. Everyone started at square one at some point in their career. You need to get experience, first, if you want to have s…
