06: Funnel or Inverted Traffic Cone?



The boys are back for another fun-filled visit.

This time around, we're talking about what it takes to leave your 9–5 job—Andrew calls them "jobby jobs"—and pursue a career as a freelancer or independent business owner. Specifically, we're discussing money. Specifics include:

  • The three ways your company pays you that aren't your salary
  • Why getting health insurance as a freelancer isn't nearly the massive obstacle most assume it is
  • A handy formula for figuring out how much you need to bring in as a freelancer to roughly approximate your current salary

Bonus: Brett cooks up a brilliant—yes, Andrew said it was "brilliant"—analogy for how money works when you work or yourself.
