IAM1665 – Freelance Writer Provides Managing Editing Services
Podcast Interview with Melanie Padgett Powers
Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Melanie gets relationships and what it takes to build them and the impact it has had on her career. I have been a guest on her show and love how she gets it about being a freelancer and the mentality you can have around it. I also thought it was really cool that she understands and leverages the power of music.

Melanie Padgett Powers Teaser 00:00
Well, I talk to freelancers a lot about this idea that we are business owners and not, quote and quote just a freelancer. And I think the freelancers who embrace that and know that they're business owners find way more success. They're a lot more confident. And so one of the things I like to say is, especially when you are, for example, interviewing clients or potential clients, it's not about, okay, well will they hire me?
Are they gonna like my portfolio and am I gonna be available? This is a mutual relationship.
