Mon, 08/10/2015 - 08:17 — julie

10 Reasons Travelling is Great for Your Freelance Career

Fri, 07/31/2015 - 07:00 — julie

It can be easy to get into a rut as a freelancer. Your sofa is well worn; your daily habits well set. As you talk to the bigwigs of XYZ Company on Skype, who knows you’re actually wearing a onesie and bunny slippers?

You Never Know Who You’ll Meet

You might end up sitting next to a top CEO on a plane, share a basket of bread with a globe-trotting entrepreneur in India, or strike up a conversation with a small business owner while waiting in line for a Vegas show.

Anyone of these people can become future business contacts for you, and, if nothing else, the short conversation you share with them could make a lasting impression on you and your business.
