Just recently I went to my first ever CollabMiami meetup. It’s a new meetup in town where the independent professionals in the area get together on a Friday morning each month. The tagline is “Freelancers don’t let freelancers work alone.” I have to say, I’m pretty excited to see these things popping up. When I […]

As a freelancer there’s a good chance that you work from home, spend a lot of time alone and generally don’t have a lot of human interaction. It can be really isolating to constantly be working independently and before long you start to miss having coworkers. This was actually me for two and a half […]

One of the most common questions I get asked from aspiring freelancers is how to build a writing portfolio from scratch. Many of them are just starting out and feel at a loss when it comes to creating a collection of writing clips. I get it because I’ve been there. We all have. All the freelancers […]

If you’re a self-employed freelancer, you’ve likely come across one of the hardest parts of the job: having to work when you’re still sick.

As it stands, over 53 million people are self-employed and studies project the number will continue increasing. This brings into question how a totally new economy, […]

At this point it’s no scret that freelancing is on the rise. According to a report done last year by MSN, from 2012 to 2013 the rate of self-employed Americans went up 1.2 percent.
