513 - Shop Talk with David Smith & Kloc

The Double Dave bonanza on Shop Talk continues but this time we have David Smith and Dave Kloc breaking down the week with Mark. Everyone on today's episode brings their perspectives on financial strategies and how the ebb and flow of a Net 30 lifestyle can wear on you. Also Dave, Dave and Mark have all recently dealt with some professional pivots in their careers and the mental fortitude it takes to make it through an uncertain time in life that comes to just about everyone. This Shop Talk gets deep at a moment's notice and always knows how to come back up for some light hearted air so be ready for a rollercoaster of emotions similar to the one you're most likely on financially if you're a freelancer. Now let's go find that guy with the twenty grand and get another paddle in the water. Talking Points The difference between small corporations, big dollar, and the freelance life. Getting emo in LA with all it's isolation. Choosing happiness over financial comfort. The rollercoaster of the grind or being chained to your paycheck.

The success of investing in yourself emotionally. …read more
