Yet, despite the growing popularity of freelancing, many freelancers fail. The most common cause of freelancing failure is a lack of concrete knowledge about how to run a business.
With these facts in mind, today I’m going to explore the question of whether schools should teach basic freelancing skills. I’ll look at the pros and cons surrounding the issue and give you a chance to weigh in with your own opinion.
The growing number of freelancers seems to be a hot topic. Nearly every week I read a news story about how there are more freelancers than ever before (although nobody seems to know for sure exactly how many there are).
What most of those articles don’t mention is that a sizable number of freelancers are part-time freelancers. That means that they have another job and freelance on the side or that they work less than a full workweek by choice. (A full workweek is usually defined as thirty hours.)
In this post, we’ll explore the world of part-time freelancing. We’ll look at some of the reasons people freelance part-time and explore some of the unique challenges they face. Plus, I’ll incorporate tips and advice from five freelancers who work part-time.
The fact is, for most internet users, social media is the main reason they get online. Chances are that many of those same users are also your clients and potential clients. If your freelancing business is not on social media yet, you’re falling behind.
Whether you’re new to freelancing and want to set up an online social media presence ASAP, or you’re a seasoned freelancing veteran who is just now taking the social media plunge, you’re sure to find a platform that appeals to you.
In this post, I’ll provide a quick overview of each of the major social media platforms and explain why a freelancer might wish to use each.
