Interview with James Clear from

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing James Clear. James is a well known Entrepreneur, Travel Photographer, and the Founder/CEO of He writes and speaks frequently on the topics of Entrepreneurship, Business Strategy, Creativity, and Health.

In this conversation, James and I discuss three points relevant to creating success as a Freelance Designer:

1) Creating the right mindset - In particular, how to think like a “businessperson” rather than merely a designer.

2) Developing your Offer – In particular, how to “productize” your services and offer a more comprehensive offering beyond mere design.

3) Finding Clients and Charging for your True Value - In particular, how to approach the almost unlimited pool of Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses in need of WordPress or other design solutions and then build profitable relationships.

We hope you enjoy the interview! If you would like to see more of these, please let us know in the comments or by tweeting to @LabSecrets
