“The Freelance Edge: Maximizing Your Potential as an Independent Contractor” was the theme of tonight’s CWIP meeting. I participated on a panel about how to get started as a successful freelancer.
Our panel on “I’ve Got My Business Cards … Now What?” was moderated by Mary Ellen Waszak. There was an interesting contrast between fellow panelist Jennifer Murtoff and me on marketing techniques. Jennifer, who freelances in English and Spanish, including educational projects, has developed a successful freelance practice through networking, while my preferred approach has been telephoning.
