The Business of Freelancing, Episode 22: Philip Morgan on Positioning

Business of FreelancingToday I sit down for a chat with Philip Morgan of Philip Morgan Consulting and My Content Sherpa to talk about positioning yourself appropriately as a freelancer in a market, and his new book, “The Positioning Manual for Technical Firms”. Philip is an expert on helping freelancers position themselves in a niche that is a good fit for their skills, goals, and ambitions.

In this show we talk all about what Positioning is, how to identify a good niche to Position yourself in, and how effective Positioning will allow you to charge higher rates, say NO to customers easier, and reach new levels in your freelancing business.

A Few Memorable Quotes From This Episode:

“You need to pick expensive problems if you want to pick a profitable niche” ~ Philip

    I can't thank you enough for everything you're doing to share your knowledge and experience with us. I've been reading and listening to a lot of "gurus" out there and often times feel like their approaches are a bit too gimmicky or lack what I appreciate about your content the most: genuinely caring about the client's needs. I read every word of every lesson many times over and I could truly feel my mindset shifting.
