Freelancing Work Guide's newsletter this week looks at the powerful trends that are driving the growth of freelancing. These trends are primarily technology-based and are disrupting industries in many areas. One of these areas is banking. This requires that those that are likely to be impacted should have a plan to be retrained. We discuss why it is wise to have a plan if you decide that you are going to become a freelancer and depart your 9 to 5 job.

One of the elements of having a good plan to become a freelancer is identifying your value proposition and charging the right price for your services. If you have been a freelancer for a while and need to lift your income you have to motivate yourself to face one of your greatest fears- increasing your rates. We have researched how you can do this!

Productivity for freelancers working over the internet is impacted by the speed of the internet. If you are in a location where your internet speed is not good, what can you do to manage this issue? Many internet workers believe that there is nothing they can do about this. However, we have found that this is not the case. In this issue, you will discover the top 10 ways to deal with a slow internet speed. These are top tips to share!

Virtual assistants have developed into a human profession nowadays! One of the driving forces behind this is the fact that there are so many internet skills to master that it is virtually impossible to master them all and still maintain a reasonable work-life balance. Amazon has taken this a step further and developed Alexa as a digital virtual assistant and is working on enhancing it with artificial intelligence, although the human virtual assistant’s industry spans the digital world. In this issue, we have had a look at Alexa and locate an article on the 49 Best Amazon Alexa Skills.

Is your family budget under pressure yet? If you have answered yes then you will particularly be interested in the Financial Tips of the Week section of our newsletter. In this section, we look at ways to make money outside of your day job. We have featured Wisebread.com's 15 ways to make money outside of your day job. Amazon has featured again with Amazon Prime's new ways to save money with Whole Foods.

The Case Study on starting an Amazon Associates website for your family to help the family budget with passive income is featured again. However, the work on it is not being very passive!
