On freelancing


Throughout this month, I’m going to explore this idea of flying solo—whether you’re a freelance translator, self-employed writer, or any other kind of entrepreneur. It’s a scary and wonderful feeling to be your own boss. At times it can be overwhelming, frustrating, lonely, exhilarating, cozy, and empowering… Often all at once.

Flying solo doesn’t have to mean going it alone, though. There are plenty of freelancers out there willing to share their experiences to help you find your way. These are some of the topics I’ve already covered in previous posts:

And for first-time freelancers, I did a special roundup of links here.

The rest of the month, I’m going to explore the ups and downs of BYOB (being your own boss) and hopefully untangle some of the trickier knots you come across.

Are there any other topics you’d like to hear more about? Leave your questions below! And of course, your experiences are welcome. How do you like flying solo?
