Takeaways from John Richardson

  • Freelance is a great way to work less hours, but still make money. To be successful as a freelancer, however, you need to build up a strong portfolio first to bring in clients. Freelance also requires that you have a lot of motivation and know how to manage your time well.
  • In the communications business, there’s a lot of turn over. People move from job to job frequently. Expect to do the same because it helps you further your career.
  • This is a creative industry, so be creative with how you get the attention of potential employers.
  • Get comfortable with writing. Write often even if it’s in an unpublished personal blog.
