Yo! What up fellow freelance/self employed dude/dudette!! Today the boys talk about things you might want to do if you have no idea what you're supposed to be doing. There's a lot of talk of going to coffee shops, using post it notes, freelance gardeners and the upcoming apocalypse awaiting mankind.

Episode 12 - Social Media
This week your favorite freelancers discuss social media and make analogies of climbing up a mountain, swimming up a mountain, skiing down a mountain and skiing up a mountain. Somehow they try to use these references to discuss social media and ask the question - how important is it to have a large following online.

Episode 10 - The Mountain... AGAIN...
HARK! LO! BEHOLD! EPISODE 9.1 HATH BEEN REBORN FROM THE ASHES!! Kind of like when Gandalf the Grey is sent back as Gandalf the White, this episode returned to us in our time of need. I could get into the technical back and forth of retrieving this episode but would anyone care? No, probably not. But look on the bright side, you get to be a part of this wonderful adventure. For a second time (or the first time, depending on which way you look at it) we discuss Neil Gaiman's words concerning his choices, goals and plans. "Something that worked for me was imagining that where I wanted to be – an author, primarily of fiction, making good books, making good comics and supporting myself through my words – was a mountain. A distant mountain. My goal.  And I knew that as long as I kept walking towards the mountain I would be all right. And when I truly was not sure what to do, I could stop, and think about whether it was taking me towards or away from the mountain." Let's get back to the mountain!!

Episode 9.2 - The Mountain
*** RIP Episode 9.1 *** You were a thing of beauty. But you weren't destined for this cruel world. Yet again, misadventures in technology have led our boys to loose ANOTHER episode to the void. We join the boys immediately afterwards as they battle to record the podcast for a second time. We discuss Neil Gaiman's words concerning his choices, goals and plans. "Something that worked for me was imagining that where I wanted to be – an author, primarily of fiction, making good books, making good comics and supporting myself through my words – was a mountain. A distant mountain. My goal.  And I knew that as long as I kept walking towards the mountain I would be all right. And when I truly was not sure what to do, I could stop, and think about whether it was taking me towards or away from the mountain." Strap yourselves in, this isn't going to be pretty.
