Episode 035: A Journalist’s Travels – Part 2

“I think people, when they write their stories, they’re just too damn careful.”

Dell Hambleton from DharmaPharm and the Going2Water documentary is back for part 2 of her interview. This time we talk about her experience as a freelance writer and she gives her tips for aspiring freelancers; including her thoughts on using Craigslist to find work and the things you can do to help you stand out from all the other freelancers out there.

“More and more, the whole idea of commuting to a specific location, sitting at a desk for 8 hours, doing that work, getting in your car, commuting home, and living that life … that’s becoming less and less feasible. Less and less desirable.”

She also gives her advice for those wanting to make a documentary or who are just looking to tell their own story.

Another topic discussed is what people are doing wrong on social media and how she feels it should be utilized.

“Social media is powerful. We just have to make it powerful. We have to make it behave.”

Lastly, she provides her advice on what the first steps should be for seeking to create a life with more freedom.

“Sometimes it just feels so huge. That the debt that we have is like this chain around our leg that keeps us acting in that role as a cog, you know, in this huge machine.”
