Are you curious about the gig economy or what it’s like to run your own business remotely? Then tune into this week’s The New New Thing podcast, where we feature special guest Nicole Ross, Founder and Head Coach at Creative Quarterbacka virtual marketing agency 100% powered by freelance talent that gives clients access to big-boy creative and project management.

Nicole joins us from her home in Montana, where she moved after launching her business. She not only successfully runs her business from the beautiful state, but she’s mastered the art of balancing her passion—riding horses—with growing her company.

We pick Nicole’s brain on the ever-evolving gig economy, her business goals, and how she manages her flexible schedule.

Tune in for details on:

  • The many experiments Nicole ran her first year of business, and which ones worked—and which did not;
  • Why she moved away from her core professional network (physically) in Indianapolis to Montana and how that helped her business and why was it so important for her to move;
  • The specific tools Nicole uses and relies on for day-to-day operations;
  • Specific programs and ideas Nicole has found successful for both her internal and external teams;
  • and more!
