Critical for freelancers’ productivity when they are using their computer is the speed of operations of the computer. If it is slow then it costs you time and therefore money. We help you find out how to identify what the problem is and to fix it.

Are you very aware of what soft skills are and why they matter to freelancers? With the help of Glenn Hickling, we tell you what the 20 soft skills that every freelancer needs. We also provide a link to the resources to upgrade your skills if you need help. Soft skills awareness and development are essential for business development and making money.

NO is an important word for freelancers! It can help prevent burnout for freelancers, especially if you are moonlighting. Leah Kalamakis contributes to Dealing with Overwhelm: Learning to Say No. You can tell Leah is speaking from experience. I like her work and I am sure you will too.

Crowdfunding is often in the news nowadays, but is it relevant to freelancers? We believe that it is and we explain why and provide some success stories of people that have used it. Jenny Knizner contributes with 9 tips for proven crowdfunding success.

We continue our work with the development of an Amazon Associates website as a case study.

Best Regards
