Meet Our Client Of The Month: Lance Lang

Most ministries are not exactly the prime target clientele for freelancers. As a category, they have a reputation for short-changing you and wanting a free lunch every other day. It’s a harsh description, but in my experience, it’s been the absolute truth. That’s why meeting Lance Lang was a refreshing change of pace.

How what I do helps you grow your business.

2012 Tales: The internet is not magic.

2012 Tales: A very expensive road trip.

Freelancers know that referrals are the lifeblood of our business. When someone refers a new client to you, it’s a great boost to your pocketbook and your morale. So when I was recommended by an acquaintance to this client that eagerly wanted to meet, I was pretty excited. There was a lot to be happy…

2012 Tales: You can’t control the wind.

When I relaunched Upward Media shortly before the start of last year, I made a big deal about a particular client that had been the lynchpin of my own change of heart just six months before. Meeting with them was like turning a corner and running smack into exactly what I wanted to do with…
