Episode Notes

Episode 01- Present and Future of Entrepreneurship

Why are people turning to self-employment in the current economy?

Alex, a freelancer who thought jumping ship and starting her journey would be a lot simpler than it turned out to be. A whole new set of challenges arise once someone decides to venture into entrepreneurship and a lot of times, those challenges are not-so-common knowledge.

We talk to some FreshBooks folks who share some interesting numbers and data on the present and future of entrepreneurship.

All these experiences, insights and pain points collectively motivated us to create this podcast, and they set the tone to all the incredible conversations we are about to share with you.
