Freelancing Advice Podcast

P.S. I haven’t heard my own voice recorded in a while (as an introvert, I don’t like it), so I apologize for what sounds like a lisp to me. I was talking on a headset for the first time, and it’s possible I was speaking too close to the microphone. That said, the words more or less make sense.

P.P.S. Re: loyalty and the aerospace business

Lest I come across as an ungrateful cur in some of my comments, I would like to point out that this was my father’s interpretation of my situation. His definition of loyalty and mine differ a bit. I’m still friends with darn near everyone I’ve met in the industry, but in the end I wasn’t able to land a steady job during my time of employment uncertainty.
