All the small business interviews

Here’s a list of all the freelance/small business interviews I’ve done. The idea? I interview a small business owner with a set of questions, then come back to them in a year’s time to see how they’re doing.

They’re in the order of their original interviews, but you can use Control-F if you want to look for a specific name, business name or business type, or just have a browse!

Note: I don’t know if all of these people are still in business and I am not responsible for any relationships you enter into with any of them as a result of seeing them here. Failure to submit a second interview does not imply they have gone out of business.

If you would like to take part in this interview series, here are the questions and how to submit them.
