An Advisory Board for Your Freelance Biz?

The “best thing” Luke Mysse, Founder of CROSSGRAIN ever did for his business—was to create an advisory board.Luke Mysse

In his session at the Creative Freelancer Conference 2011 (To Plan or Not to Plan?), Luke talked about accountability—and why we need to be accountable to other people as well as ourselves.

To help him reach his goals, Luke created an advisory board for his business. In this short audio clip, he explains his criteria for picking members, and describes who his five members are:

• The financial guy
• The former client
• The customer service guy
• The good friend
• The successful designer

During his session at CFC in June, Luke challenged listeners to set up their own advisory boards.
