In this episode, we discuss Kevin Hoffman's view on the Freelancer vs. the Agency. Which one should you be? Both? Neither? The Experienced Freelancer (aka independent design consultants) can do what agencies do because their network is so deep, and their overhead is so low. Those working in a design business on their own can build amazing teams, and still work with Fortune 100 clients. Maybe you can too.
Other topics discussed:
- freelancers as mercenaries,
- freelancers may take orders, but independent design consultants ask the client "how do you even know you have a problem?"
- pricing clients up front as a consultant,
- how he does project management,
- taking risks by saying 'No' to certain work and services,
- and much more!
