Being a freelancer can be tough. We often work alone, isolated from our peers, and without a guide to tell us what we’re doing right or wrong. Should I work with this client? What business entity should I operate under? When should I increase my rates? What do I do about taxes? These questions and more are asked by both new and veteran freelancers, and finding answers in all the noise can be overwhelming.
On January 1, 2015, I launched Freelancing Digest to help with some of that. Freelancing Digest is a newsletter distributed on the 1st and 15th of the month, and contains links to some of the best articles on the web about freelancing. The artcles aren’t limited to a specific industry or to what is currently in fashion, but will be a mix of new and classic posts and from a variety of perspectives.
This is the newsletter I wish I had when I started, and I really hope it’s a help to you in your career.
You can sign up on the form to the right or on the Freelancing Digest’s main site.
