Helping Yourself by Helping Others with Ryan Waggoner on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 13

Freelancing can be tough, but after nine years consulting as a mobile developer, Ryan Waggoner has learned some ways to make it more approachable from the start, and more profitable as your business grows. Ryan still consults with clients directly on mobile projects while also running LetsMakeApps.io, a curated daily lead service that helps other freelancers find new opportunities in design and development for web and mobile. In this interview he shares with us the patterns he’s built into his daily routine to make sure his top priorities are always addressed first, where to put the focus when planning a new project, and why he thinks charging by the hour is a disservice to both the client and the freelancer.
