About Us

"Freelancing is like running your own business."Heard that before? You've got to handle cash flow, client management, project management and you now supply your own 'employee' benefits. This is all while building your name up as a trustworthy business and getting more clients.And there are also bigger things to worry about. Between AI, the blockchain, and whatever Elon Musk is up to—automation and digital technology aren’t just changing the big companies, but are impacting our everyday lives. What does it mean to be a freelancer today? How do we stay ahead of the competition? Can we continue to stay agile and upscale in a changing global economy?Freelance Exchange is our first ever podcast about freelancers by freelancers. Hosted by CreativesAtWork co-founders Fanny and Jayce, you will find candid conversations with creative professionals about freelancing and the gig economy in Singapore & beyond.
