“I realized: this is it! This is the thing I’ve been waiting for.” (My Freelance Life Ep. 001)

Welcome to episode one of My Freelance Life—a brand-new podcast from the team here at Millo.

I’m Preston—founder of Millo—and joining me on the show is my friend Andy.

A few months ago, Andy and I worked together at a tech startup. That was until Andy sent a Slack message to the entire company to inform us all….

he was quitting.

Not only was he leaving his day job, but his plan was to start freelancing full-time, traveling the world, and living life on his own terms.

This new show is a weekly check-in with Andy to see what really happens when you quit your day job to start freelancing full-time.

In today’s episode—my first on-air conversation with Andy—I drill him with some important questions including what exactly happened that fateful day when he met with his boss to put in his two weeks’ notice.
