Why Copyblogger co-founder Sonia still freelances on the side of her multi-million-dollar business

In today’s episode of Freelance to Founder, you’ll hear the story of Sonia Simone, co-founder and Chief Content Officer of Copyblogger.

Copyblogger is a massive business that’s gone through quite the evolution over the years. If you’re into content marketing, you’ve run across Sonia’s and Brian Clark’s content at some point.

In this episode, you’ll hear about how Sonia came to join forces with Brian in the earliest days, why she never felt comfortable in the corporate world, how learning how to start a blog and make money from it has challenged her skillsets and priorities, and how she balances her Copyblogger work while continuing to do freelance work on the side.

Without further adieu, here’s our interview with Sonia Simone, co-founder of Copyblogger.

Coming up next week, we’ve got the founder of Wavve.co — Baird Hall. This guy started up an obscure company that nobody knows about, called uTalk Sports. It failed, but he took numerous lessons learned and poured them into the founding of Wavve.

Brought to you by Millo.co AND The Podglomerate podcast network, this is the show where we learn from entrepreneurs who understand focus and scale. They’ve started off as solo practitioners — developers, designers, product marketers, or creatives — and found out how to grow something to be bigger than themselves.

You get to hear the details of what they did, how they did it, and what decisions were the hardest to make along the way.
