Hi there, this is Wouter, founder of Freelancer Talk. I’m happy to share that starting in 2023, The Freelancer Talk Podcast is officially back!
2022 was an insane year. I officially quit my career as a professional dancer and devoted myself to Freelancer Talk and my new venture Lanced.
Creating Freelancer Talk has been a wild ride. I’ve approached it as one big experiment, and my gosh, I made a lot of ‘fails’. But yet, without those failures, I wouldn’t have been where I am today… which is where exactly? I still don’t know!
I started The Freelancer Talk podcast back in 2020 during COVID when I lost all my jobs as a dancer and sat at home bored. While there are many cool platforms out there for freelancers, I really missed one that is both for internationals and creatives.
The Freelancer Talk podcast actually turned into a channel for me to research the freelance field. The question I asked myself was; “how can a creative freelancer create a sustainable career?”
Freelancer Talk and Lanced are both companies born from the answers to that particular question. Through my research conducted at Freelancer Talk, I came to the realization that we needed more automated tools to help creatives with their freelance careers. INSERT LANCED.
Together with Stavya Bhatia, I founded Lanced; an early-stage tech startup developing a marketplace and management platform for organizations and professionals in the Creative & Cultural Industries.
We are actually crowdfunding for Lanced! So if you’re interested in learning more about lanced, check out the following link: getlanced.com
2022 has been one hell of a ride 😱 but I am already looking forward to 2023.
I’m happy to announce that in 2023 The Freelancer Talk podcast will return for weekly episodes on Tuesdays! Plus we are going to launch our Freelancer Academy as well 🤩 The Academy will include coaches, workshops, and lots of resources to help you and your freelance career.
But yeah besides that, I am very excited to continue my work for Lanced and Freelancer Talk and help the next generation of creatives to succeed 💪🏼
