Listen to the Interview


Jonty Young ProfileHello and welcome to The Remote Podcast Episode 12. This podcast is all about location independence, digital nomadism, and living life on your terms.

Each week we interview a new guest on the show, and this week I sat down with Jonty Young, a seasoned freelancer who is from the UK and based in Chicago.

In this week’s episode, we take a deep dive into the freelancing world. We cover a ton of topics, including:

  • Getting your first projects and building your portfolio
  • Managing clients and their expectations
  • How to start charging for your work, the right way
  • The pros and cons of freelancing while working a full-time job
  • How to make sure you get paid
  • Whether or not it’s important to have a contract

… and more. Seriously, if you’re thinking about freelancing, or are a freelancer, this episode is packed with value.

Here are some links we refer to in the episode:
