He was the Uber Eats before there was Uber Eats. He opened a drive-in theatre, when all drive-in theatres were closing up. He meditated and realised how much it has helped him and so he helped others by creating mindfulness festivals. Who is this, you may ask? In today’s episode we talk to Eric Forbis, a very inspiring business owner, mentor and a friend. Listen to his story to find out more!
We invited Peter C. Hayward to discuss Australia, his freelance life, podcasts, boardgames, erotica and how living with someone who’s suicidal and having a child is not that different after all. Peter gives us all an update of what his life looks like at the time of recording in December 2018 while the last episode of his podcast was released a year prior. And lastly, a trip to Cape Verde at the end.
Michael Petrus is a Czech comics artist, illustrator, but also a podcaster, co-founder of profiKOMIKS and a start-up called Nanits Universe. He’s joining us in an episode, where we talk about understanding your clients, managing creatives, the importance of creative briefs and what it takes to succeed on Kickstarter.
I always call it a team building, but the truth is, it is just a vacation. A working vacation. Me and Mike both love to travel (that is why we are working hard on becoming independent, if you’re new around here) and we love to work on things that we are passionate about. So whenever we travel together, we try to spend as much time as possible working on the podcast and other creative projects. This January we set off to the beautiful islands of Cabo Verde.
A few days back Mike & I have kicked-off Season 2 of our podcast! We are so excited to bring you new stories, new segments and mainly – new guests. We took a little break, recorded a bunch of great interviews, and talked to many amazing freelancers about what they do and how they started their journey.
In the opening episode of Season 2, we are joined by our first guest Juan Latapi, remote worker and travel enthusiast. Juan was born in Mexico, but grew up in the USA where he also started his career path. How did he manage to keep his position and transition into a remote worker back in Mexico? Why does one start talking to his dogs when working from a living room sofa? Juan has joined us from Chicago while on his month long business trip to give us all the answers. We conclude this episode discussing the real Mexican tacos, and, of course, our new segment The Sounds of our Lives.
It has been almost a year since we’ve released our first episode. A lot has changed since then. We’ve learned how to speak into the microphone, it became less awkward to communicate in English between Mike and I, and we’ve also learned a bit of how to work with sound.
Season 1 of our podcast has mapped our life starting the summer of 2017 up until the summer of 2018. Both of us went through many changes and our ideas and plans have shifted a little. We are still figuring life out, we are still not fully committed to freelance, but we are both closer to the dream life we are envisioning.
Tag along with Adel and Mike on their new adventure! Five days in Finland compressed into a bonus episode, where you will find out how expensive this nordic country is, whether Adel survives her first visit to sauna, and what is Mike’s overall impression of the Helsinki subway system.
Adel talks about her quarter life crisis and how she overcame it, Mike tells us all about his new tea, and together they share their new morning routine. To wrap up Season 1, Mike and Adel introduce new segment of the podcast and tell us more about upcoming changes.
Do you need a contract for every gig? Is it better to work for free or to work for a small amount of money? In today’s episode, Adel and Mike agree to disagree on various topics surrounding the most important part of every business: the client. Adel tries to help Mike understand the wedding client, while Mike speaks about a commercial he has recently produced.
