Jonathan Stark

Phillip Morgan

In this episode of the Freelancer’s Show, Johnathan and Phillip discuss aging as a freelancer. The topics cover the meager beginnings of a freelancer’s life to the advance contractor's success.  Phillip and Johnathan talk about things concerning personal energy levels in a brick and mortar job vs. freelancing, insurances, repetition of the job, staying interested in your job, and networking, and the highs and low expectation of contracting throughout a freelancing career.

In particular, we dive pretty deep on:

  • Aging as you work for yourself
  • Energy
  • Multiple forms of insurance
  • Stability in your career
  • Growing in your career
  • Living out of a car or small spaces
  • Expectation of freelancing
  • Boredom on the job
  • Finding yourself doing the same thing as your younger peers
  • Making a difference in the world
  • Having to learn new platforms to keep your career exciting
  • Laborious feelings about specialization
  • Doing vertical moves, or lateral moves
  • Motivation and expertise to advise
  • And much more!
