166: What freelancing looks like in 2021 with Craig Cannings of FreelanceU



Freelancing has changed a lot in the past year, in the past 5 years, and in the past 10 years! In this episode I am chatting with the co-founder of FreelanceU, Craig Cannings, on what freelancing looks like in 2021!

Craig, together with his wife, started freelancing more than 15 years ago. They then founded FreelanceU where they teach people how to start a freelance business. In this interview, Craig and I talk through what services are most needed right now and where his students are finding clients in 2021.

It is so exciting to see the freelance industry grow! I hope this episode inspires you and illustrates how much the freelance industry has grown and will continue to grow based on the needs of businesses.

Thanks for listening today! Come chat with me over on Instagram (@Micala.Quinn)!
