Welcome to the first ever episode of the Freelance Entrepreneur podcast.  A place designed by someone new to the business world.  Before making the leap to starting up my own business, I would listen to lots of podcasts, as well as doing a lot of research online to understand if what I was planning to do would work. I found that there were not that many available resources based in the UK to gain an insight into things I wanted to know.  The questions swirling in my mind were things such as "am I better off as a limited company or a sole trader", "how do I even start up a limited company" and "am I even good enough to be doing this".  So, I decided to create this podcast from scratch, with a view to providing a foundation to grow a knowledge network.  I will be asking the simple questions to a range of experts to find the answers to common problems people may be experiencing early on.In this introduction I give you a brief insight as to what you can expect from this podcast moving forward.  In this season we speak with experts on:-1. Self-worth;2. Stress and anxiety; and3. Financial planning.  As well as much much more...So, subscribe, leave a review and let's jump in together.  Want more?  Check out the website for a link to the young and fresh Facebook group!https://thefreelanceentrepreneur.co.uk/#entrepreneur #freelance #podcast
