I first found Kristin’s content last week when I was searching for another writer, and came across her profile on a popular blog. I reached out to interview Kristin because it’s clear she has a lot to share, and is a very effective communicator.

How to Write Epic Posts

The first articles I published online were kind of drab. I basically just emulated what many other people were doing: short articles with content that wasn’t unique.

Advanced Freelancing Tactics – Robert Williams

I met Robert Williams a few years back when I interviewed him about his success as a freelance designer.

Now, Robert runs a cool online business, Workshop.

Basically, Workshop is a platform that connects designers and other service providers with business owners via streams of project leads. This service is especially valuable for people who are talented at their craft, but don’t have time or interest to do marketing. You pay the quarterly membership dues and Robert turns on the fire hose of project leads.
