This week Frankie Tortora and Steve Folland have a chat in response to a question from Detective Mo White AKA Anonymous. They say:

“How do you know you’re ready to make the leap into freelancing — especially during COVID?

I’ve been freelancing on the side for a while and am feeling super uninspired by my day job lately. I don’t currently make enough freelancing to make it work with healthcare and such (thanks, America) but am considering making the jump.

What were your must-dos before jumping into full time self-employment?”
