[BONUS] The Discomfort Zone (s02e10) – Works For Me!

"Young Alex" (Alex Bell) joins us to discuss sleep, herb dependence, a stoic disconnection from comfort and convenience, and Getting Thing Done. Then Alex educates us on why Freelancing should be in every creative's toolkit (that's the title of a presentation he's giving on June 15th!) and he shares several strategies for getting started, finding clients, and ultimately succeeding. We have some really great public speaking tips for him too! Want to see Alex speak?
