At the heart of Matt's freelance success are other people. Sure, of course he's good at what he does. He's not just made podcasts, he's both made and seized opportunities. But more importantly he's made connections when he's met people.
Put simply: the more people you meet, the more chance you have of working with them in the future. Be that fellow freelancers or potential clients. Just keep meeting people!
We also chat about building a business and family, great customer experience, producing his own independent podcasts and not just entering or winning awards, but co-founding the awards for his industry - The British Podcast Awards.
