This week, I wanted to try something a little different. I’ve noticed a lot of great content being written about freelancing and rather than add my own two cents worth in the mix, I figured I’d simply share with you these resources, because they will definitely impact your business.
Plus, it’s always good to hear from another’s perspective too, after all, I am not the only successful freelancer out here!
Each blog post and resource is something that I’ve read myself and have found to be invaluable in my business, and I know it will be in yours, so without further ado, here they are.
