On today’s show, we chat with Mateo who’s calling in from Mexico. Mateo has been working hard as a freelancer and making pretty great money at it too. But even with all his success, Mateo still feels like he’s just trading his hourly work for a paycheck. He’s ready to go from freelancer to agency and build a business that makes money beyond himself.

But being ready and actually feeling motivated and accountable are two very different things. So Clay and I help Mateo break down a few ways he can stay motivated to get important tasks done and stay accountable to the vision of his future.
