How Brennan Dunn went from high-school developer to the ‘Double Your Freelancing’ brand and beyond (FTF 3.1)

“Failure is just an interesting way of collecting more data.” It’s an interestingly optimistic way to look at life and at business and it’s a fantastic introduction to our most recent guest on the Freelance to Founder podcast, Brennan Dunn.

Brennan is the founder of Double Your Freelancing, a brand that includes a blog, courses, a live event, and other resources for freelancers. He also recently launched Right Message, a new service that allows you to change what you display on your website based on what you know about the person viewing it.

But it wasn’t that long ago, Brennan was a freelancer himself, struggling to make ends meet and learning—the hard way—what it takes to build a successful freelance business from the ground up.

Brennan’s story starts long before college or even high school when his dad, who was also an entrepreneur, would coach Brennan through the logistics of turning his lemonade stand into a lemonade enterprise.

Brennan’s journey from freelance to founder has been an exciting ride and we’ve captured some of the best parts in this week’s episode—the very first in Season 3.

To hear how Brennan continues to push the limits on freelancing and building a successful business, you can listen to the full episode below:
