128: What is Freelancing

On another special guest episode with Chris DeCaro, Andrew and Brett argue what a freelancer is. And why no definition of freelancer includes "solo-prenuer".

High points include:

  • Freelancer is a very broad term - and it changes with context
  • People forget how different how fundamentally different being an employee and contractor are
  • A contractor is usually a remote worker. But not all remote workers are freelancers
  • Remote work suffers from the Jurassic Park problem
  • Andrew doesn't believe anyone working at a coffee shop is making any money
  • Being a Solo-Prennuer means you are starting a business no one wants to help you with
  • Launching a product isn't the same as launching a business

Quote "I get that you have a business Brett! "
