After leaving college and landing in a job that wasn’t right for him, Jared realised that he didn’t want to spend his whole life working at something he wasn’t passionate about.

He launched a blog, began learning Squarespace, and the rest, as they say, is history. He now runs two Squarespace design companies - Brevity and the cleverly-named WebsiteByTonight.

From giving away a couple of freebie designs to kick off his portfolio to hiring other freelancers and finding ways to scale his business, Jared’s made a lot of progress. Listen to him share some of the biggest lessons he’s learnt a long the way.
