In this fun video discussion, me (Jason Scott Montoya) and Jim Karwisch talk about the transition from Corporate America to full-time freelancing. Jim shared with us in a previous blog about his jump from fortune 500 to freelancing and we dive into that story in a much deeper way.
In this casual and spirited discussion, Toby Bloomberg (Social Media Guru) & I (Jason Montoya) share how we met and our respective journies to freelancing. We also dive into the process of writing my first book while juggling ambitions & family. We wrap up by discussing the eight achievements from Path Of The Freelancer and Toby shares her advice to potential freelancers looking to make the jump.
