I’m a big believer in joint ventures and partnerships. The best thing to have happened to my online business, in fact, was a partnership agreement. It led to more income, more work, and more satisfaction.
As a freelancer, many times we’d rather go it alone. It’s that old self-reliance, independence forever mindset. I have it. I think we all have it. That’s why we’re in business for ourselves.
Truth is, as the old adage goes, two heads make better than one. If that’s true then three and four heads should be even better, right? Well, I’m not a proponent of having too many cooks in the kitchen or too many chiefs in the tribe, but I do believe that partnership agreements can lead to bigger and better things for both partners if there is mutual respect.

Skillance is not “advertising” on FreelanceFolder, we’re partners (which is even nicer), as in “win-win” for both FreelanceFolder and Skillance. You can now see the Skillance logo in the sidebar on the right. [Click Here to Read More...]

A lot of folks prefer installing a software on their computers and keeping all their data on there, but I personally like web-based apps, they’re great for the freelancers “on the go“.
