Happy 10th show to Startup BizCast! In episode 10 of the small business advice podcast that’s shorter than your coffee break, we talk about knowing when it’s time to strike out on your own. If you’ve ever thought about becoming a small business owner or professional freelancer, you know that unless you’re pushed into it by a layoff or firing, it’s tough deciding when to make the move.

My guest for this episode is Jonathan Phillips, a freelance web designer, musician, and founder of the blog Freelance Folder, which gives advice on freelancing and entrepreneurship.

In honor of Startup BizCast’s 10th show, I’ve got new theme music! It’s a song called Dangerous Things, by George Fletcher’s Bourbon Renewal. The full version, along with other music by the same artist, can be downloaded at Podsafe Music Network.

I want to hear YOUR small business advice! If you have tips or feedback on this or other episodes, the best way to contact me is to leave a voice mail by calling (206) 984-0860.

  1. Hey Steve, thanx a lot for the opportunity, it was really fun being interviewed (although I hate the sound of my own voice on recording hehe)


  2. Steve Mullen says:

    Most people do. There’s actually a scientific reason for that, if you care at all. When you hear yourself talk every day, you’re hearing yourself not only through the air, but also through the bones in your head. When you hear a recording, you’re removing the latter part of that equation, and you sound slightly different.


    Mr. Science

    PS – Thanks for taking the time to provide some advice for my listeners!

  3. Nice format. It would be nice if you also offered a text summary of the interview (with the key take-aways). This will both make your podcasts more searchable, which will attract more prospective listeners.

    Thanks for the feedback, Jay. I’ve thought about that, too. I decided instead to post what the interview is about and who is being interviewed. That’s enough to get the keywords the search engines want, but not so much that people don’t feel the need to actually listen to the show. I figure with a short format like mine (15 minutes or less!), it’s not too much trouble to listen for a bit to get the content.
