Due Pinterest

Pinterest may not immediately come to mind as a way to boost your freelance business. I know I personally used to think it was simply a place for people to design dream houses, look at clothing and create a board for weddings.

In the new world of work we live in today, we’re seeing a bit of a hybrid between freelancers and business owners.
