Happy Friday everyone!
Just want to ALERT THE MEDIA — well, maybe not go that far — but definitely let you know that Freelancer’s University has asked me to write a series ofguest blogs for them detailing my first year as a full-time freelancer, and the first post is up on their website!
There will be thrills! Chills! Spine-tingling moments of terror!
Slogs through the sloughs of despondency! Triumphs!
Dragon-killing! Ticker-tape parades regaling my awesomeness!
Okay, maybe not the last two.
OR MAYBE SO?!
I still have three months until I hit the one-year mark as a full-time freelancer; who knows what else could happen this year?
Please check out the first post and check out Freelancer’s University.
A little about Freelancer’s University:
“Let’s face it. Most creatives didn’t take business classes in school … probably because they weren’t required. But now, they’re out on their own, trying to figure it all out on their own.
Well, not anymore! Introducing Freelancers University — where you can master in the fine art of being self-employed. From business basics and marketing tips to software training and continuing education, discover all the little nuances it takes to start, run and succeed in the wonderful world of freelancing.
So, go ahead. Pick up where your formal education left off. And get schooled.“
