Starting out as a Freelancer Should not be: Fire, Ready, Aim!

Following are the brief summaries of the articles that we've featured in this newsletter. Click on the Go to the Newsletter icon below that links to the newsletter and check the articles.

When you start out as a freelancer, even moonlighting, it is important that you have thought the issues through and have a plan. We explain why.

Having a positive mindset is important for freelancers because they have to get work done and keep going even when they have had a setback. We explain how they can do this.

The 50/30/20 plan for budgeting quite often crops up in this newsletter and will continue to do so because it can help contribute to your building your finances in the long term.

Freelancers who have been in business for a long term will have learnt lessons along the way. This is one of the benefits of being a member of the Freelancers Union where other members will share their experiences. Lori Bumgarner shares some valuable lessons.

When we read the article about the Australian start-up that has now helped train more than 850,000 software engineers globally we were amazed. We reveal who it is and what training they do.

We have researched our three skills development and inspirational articles for the week.

Our Amazon AWS news and Associates Case Study latest sales news is shared along with our regular news on cyber security for freelancers.
