Ep. 8 Interview with Carrie Dils

In this episode, I speak with Carrie Dils.  Carrie is such a sweet heart and speaking with her was such a pleasure.  She’s a developer primarily in the Genesis Framework and is currently working at Crowd Favorite. When she’s not knee deep in code, she’s doing an awesome live video podcast called OfficeHours!  Used to be called Genesis Office hours, but times have changed and it’s amazing how Carrie has grown in her career.

In this episode, there’s a ton to take away.  This was recorded last year when Carrie was in the middle of a transition with her career.  She drops some knowledge bombs about freelancers, finding the right audience, and so much more.

I like the fact that this interview is a year old because you can here a lot of what she was doing compared to what she’s doing now, which is a pretty incredible transition.  Applying the right steps, talking to the right people, and networking in general really pays off.
