After last week’s surprise interview with Don Bluth, we’re back with part 2 of the RubberOnion Freelance School and this time we’re talking about what would be the goal in your second year: creating your brand. We talk about using your own personality and voice to shape the tone of your brand, how to market yourself, the importance and limitations of a niche market and a bunch more.
