This journal aims to define how people have always misconstrued freelancing to be raking in the dough so easily in a short span of time. No. Freelancing is a business, but with quite privilege, you can mostly run it from the comfort of your home while rocking your favourite sweatpants in an online meeting or a discussion with a prospect.
Freelancing gives us the comfort of having to be our best entrepreneur selves while bringing quality services to clients to require and are utterly confident about our expertise.

iFreelance Journal is this bit on The iFrontier Solutions Insider dedicated to exhort individual contractors about the ups and downs of the career, and to share the best practices in the industry – thus, making sure everyone has the chance to be at par with everybody else.

iFreelance Journal looks to be the best place for expert advice and informative tips on how you can become a better and successful freelancer.

Feel free to have a look at the latest posts this bit has got around for you and leave your two cents about it. You can even share it to the rest of the world if you feel a lot of our peers are still missing out on the buzz.

What Is Freelancing? Typically, companies hire freelancers to complete task-oriented projects like graphic design, programming, marketing, data analysis, blogging and copywriting.

SETTING YOUR FREELANCING GOALS AND BUILDING YOUR CAREER

For years of doing online jobs I still get quite a number of people raising their eyebrows. Skeptical questions are still being asked whether I do really make money online or not. There are those who doubt themselves, too as to whether they can be motivated enough to work from home. And while some are asking about my daily work habits, others would take the liberty to assume that I am probably an exception to the “freelancing rule”, as if there is an unspoken one. To be honest, I have not known of a freelancing rule written in stone yet. […]
