 11 Things I wish I knew before I went freelance 11 Things I wish I knew before I went freelance

I’ve learnt a lot of lessons over the years. Here’s what I can share.

Last month I made a mistake and I felt I should have known better.

It doesn’t happen often but if someone had told me how to handle that situation from the moment I went freelance then I might have made a better choice. Today’s episode is all about the things I wish someone had told me from the start. The silly little pieces of advice that will make your life that little bit easier, smoother and hopefully work-wise – busier.

Let me know what you think. Does this help? Have you got more things to add to the list? Let me know.


A few things we covered in this episode :
