    It’s time for the Freelance Lifestyle Tea Break Challenge!

    (Can we all pretend I’m not actually late posting this challenge? Yes? Wonderful!)

    So, this week, it’s all about community. Working from home or freelancing definitely has perks, but sometimes you just want to talk to someone other than the cat. Getting to know your local community means you can meet new contacts, friends, potential clients and discover lots of new things about the area.

    Check out the animation of five steps to get to know your community better, then let me know how YOU’RE going to get to know your community a little better this week.

  • The Freelance Lifestyle Tea Break Challenge: Get paid faster!

    This week’s Freelance Lifestyle Tea Break Challenge is about something a lot of freelancers worry about. We spend hours trying to deal with it. It’s one of the biggest problems freelancer face. It makes us envious of those that get a set payday every month.

    Late payments from clients.

    Chasing clients for payments is one of the most frustrating parts of being freelance. Chances are, you’ve heard a dozen different excuses as to why a client doesn’t pay on time.

    But there are two steps you can take to either improve the speed of their payment, or discourage late payers. When I put these two steps into place, 60% of my clients started paying my invoices within one week of receiving the invoice. These were clients that previously avoided paying my invoices within 30 days – so this made a big difference to my business.

    Want to know what those two steps are? Check out this week’s three-minute, Freelance Lifestyle Tea Break Challenge

    Do  you use these two steps? What results have you seen?
