Latitude: Mindful productivity for freelancers and founders

Latitude: Mindful productivity for freelancers and founders

Latitude is an interview show about all the non-business parts of running a successful online business. I interview freelancers and founders about how they are building their businesses and (mostly) maintaining their sanity. Latitude is about finding the space to do real, meaningful, creative work. Work that inspires others and motivates yourself. I interview creators like you to discover what it actually takes to show up and define work on your own terms. Doing creative work is hard. Making a living from that creative work is even harder. Latitude attempts to make it just a little bit easier. Hosted by Bryan Zavestoski of CreateLatitude.com.
