The modest and legendary podcaster... who was the first to invite me to speak about @freelancenotion publicly. Without her I wouldn't have any audio assets to share about my journey.

What's it all about?

We all hear the "overnight success" stories, but there is a huge piece of the puzzle they're leaving out!  Surely failure is a part of your journey!  My goal, to expose the "sticky middle", show you that everyone fails and you can turn that into success.

Talks With SaraNoSocks Podcast Cover Art

On Monday's I chat about my own fails along the way. These are available on to watch on YouTube!

In between episodes I share thoughts from the shows and what I'm up to as a freelancer.

Ep 85: I miss the ease of corporate

Let's face it, having a traditional job is easier. You just need to show up, do your job and go home. I miss that feeling. I've been feeling like I can't keep my head above water for the last few months drowning under the weight of having to do it all.  When I was asked last week about whether or not I miss corporate, naturally my honest answer is at least once a week.

Ep 83: Let's chat about toxic generosity

Giving too much can be a bad thing.  Just like we can't be happy go lucky all the time, you can't just give away all your time.  I've fallen into a rut where I use generosity as a procrastination technique to avoid going all in on myself and my goals.  This week I'm sharing the one and only thing I am doing to break this habit.
