[4:40] Kate advises Joe to pick a date to plan around for becoming full-time freelance. She explains that this will make it easier to plan the steps to get there once he has a timeline set for when he would ultimately like to switch to full-time freelance.
[7:32] Nicki reminds Joe not to overcomplicate his plan for going full-time. She points out that the best way to bridge the gap between a full-time job and full-time freelancing is to consistently sending out pitches and follow-ups that will help him gather the necessary clients to support him full-time.
[10:03] Kate explains that Joe should find the line for the amount of work he can take on while also working his full-time job. It’s important not to spread yourself too thin so that you can avoid burnout and enjoy the freedom that copywriting gives you.
[12:15] Nicki leaves Joes with the reminder that it’s impossible to predict exactly what his transition to full-time freelance will look like, but having a plan and savings stored away will help him smoothly move from his full-time job into full-time copywriting.
