“Be the best boss you ever had,” says Stefano, and he’s trying to live up to that himself.
From not letting an employer’s limits hold him back, to re-imagining work-life balance on his own terms, to developing a portfolio that’s not just about winning work, but about showing his journey too; Stefano tries to make his professional development and mental well-being a priority.
With an “umbrella of skills” and a professional title that doesn’t tie him to one specific job, Stefano’s able to build deeper, longer-term relationships with clients.
He chats to Steve about he got started, how he finds clients, and how he’s worked on his mindset and well-being throughout his freelance career.
