Freelancers place a high premium on their time—at least those of us who don’t want to be stuck pulling consecutive all-nighters do. Unfortunately, however, we also don’t have a whole team to help with the administrative heavy lifting: there’s just you, your laptop and the cat—and we all know that cats don’t make the most helpful coworkers. Add that all together and you have a recipe for frustration, unless you take steps to reduce the amount of time you spend on repetitive, time-intensive tasks.

From International Affairs to Interviewing: One Journalist’s Story
Daniel Giacopelli is familiar with the interview process. He’s just usually the one asking the questions.
Despite seeming like a natural on the mic, Daniel’s path to journalism wasn’t always so clear. Daniel had always aspired to be a diplomat. After completing his masters in London, he fell into a career with a magazine (and now radio station) he’d always admired. Today, he’s a New Yorker living in London and working as the creator, producer, and host of podcasts and radio shows for Monocle 24.
Daniel interviews some of the best and brightest across the world, so we decided to flip the script and ask him what he’s learned, what’s next, and even the story of how he got from A to Z. Don’t forget to check out Daniel’s page and his podcast, The Entrepreneurs.
