I read a lot of articles when I decided to make the transition to self employment. Today, I thought I’d share some great words of wisdom I found along the way. If you’ve already made the leap into freelance work or are considering do so, then these resources are all helpful.
*12 essential steps to starting your freelance business – Regina’s blog is so helpful, seriously you need to read every post because there is just so much useful information to digest.
*How to make money from freelance blogging – particularly helpful is you already have a blog and are considering branching out.
*100 sites that pay you to write – lots of websites that will pay for your writing. Lots of food for thought here.
*UK freelance tax and self employment – I struggled to find up to date advice on tax returns but this post helped me so much!Remember you need to declare your earnings if you undertake any freelance work.
*The money shed work from home toolkit – a list of resources you may need and links to some work from home opportunities.
All these make a good starting point for those new to freelancing or those thinking about working from home. You’ll find a lot of information on the web and it can be completely overwhelming. In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some genuine work from home opportunities – writing and otherwise, creating a portfolio, organisation tips, the best freelance job sites, setting up a blog for freelance purposes, money saving tips and how to create the perfect CV.
