[Q&A] Am I Wrong to Turn Down This Client?

10 min

Jun 20, 2023

Today's question comes from Emma Noel, a member of our Facebook Mastermind Group.

She says, "How do I politely turn down a client? I had a Zoom meeting with a potential client, and we left off with me saying I'd sent her a proposal. But since then, I've decided I don't want to work with her anymore. Apparently, she and her husband run two businesses. The client says she knows how to do everything but doesn't have the time, which is why they're hiring me. It sounds like there'll be a pain to work with. And I'd rather not deal with the hassle. So how do I politely say I'm not interested?

Jun 15, 2023

On today’s show: do you ever wonder how to generate some of the best leads possible? 

For most freelancers and agencies, filling your pipeline with quality leads is not only critical to your business’s health, but also one of the toughest problems to solve.

That’s how our guest Morgan feels right now. Morgan’s a side-hustler who wants to take her freelancing full-time.

But until she has a steady stream of client leads, it just can’t happen.

So Clay and I break down everything we know about lead generation—from local leads, to online leads and everything in between. 

It’s a can’t-miss episode.

Does ROI Always Matter?

57 min

May 25, 2023

When growing your business, should you worry about getting a positive ROI on every penny you spend?

It’s an interesting question for me while talking with today’s guest, Sarah.

Sarah started her own agency just 5 months ago. And while she’s been able to get hourly contractors on board quickly to help with creative work, she’s having difficulty finding the right people to help with administrative work.

Even more, she’s not sure how to pay for them. Because in a traditional agency model, everything has to be tied back to billable client hours.

After talking through it, we came up with some good solutions. 

PS: Sarah is looking to hire someone to help with client relations. Her contact info is below:

[Q&A] How to Invoice for Extra Work

8 min

May 23, 2023

Today's question comes from our free Facebook Mastermind Group.

Laura MCFalls says, "I ended up doing more work than was included in a proposal I sent to a client and forgot to send an updated estimate as promised. So now I'm wondering, do I send an invoice for the entire amount and hope that they're not upset? Or what should I do? For what it's worth, the client was fully aware of how much extra work there was and they were asking for the extra work. And when they went over the original scope, they were aware of it. So nothing was a surprise."

Clay and I will do our best to answer.

May 04, 2023

On today’s show, we chat with Carey from PodcastFastTrack.com where his business has taken off over the years. Carey is a bit further along in life than many of our guests and is contemplating retirement. 

But instead of just selling his business, he wonders: can he just hire the right people to keep the business running smoothly and send him a paycheck each month?

The answer is “yes” and by the end of the show, Carey admits he wished he’d considered this question much earlier in his career.

[Q&A] Am I Offering Too Many Services?

16 min

Apr 18, 2023

In today's SHORT, Brittany says, "I'm a freelance designer and a marketer located in New York. My question is, how do you keep clients engaged once they've signed on? I have a few clients that have signed up for monthly marketing support, etc, but the problem is, I can't get anything out of them. I need content and updates. I've tried emails, I've tried setting up monthly check in meetings, but nothing seems to really work. And because of this, I feel I'm failing them. They're paying their bills. But at the end of the day, I don't feel good about it, because my results aren't what they could be. I would love any advice."

We've chatted about this in a full length episode previously, but it's been a while. We've probably learned something since then. So, we'll do our best to answer Brittany's question.

Have you ever looked at all the marketing options out there and felt so overwhelmed you just don’t do any marketing at all?

[Q&A] Can I Become a Freelance Translator?

18 min

Mar 28, 2023

Today's question comes from Joshua in our Facebook Mastermind Group. You can join here.

Joshua says, " is it completely unrealistic to try setting up as a freelance translator with only one second language and no formal translation qualification?"

Today I will answer this question with a special co-host: Christine Olivas from Co-Conspirators Agency.

To submit your question, visit FreelanceToFounder.com/ASK, and we'll feature you on an upcoming episode.
