All You Need to Know About Freelancing Etiquette, You Learned in Kindergarten
“Don’t hit people” is one of the first rules you learn in kindergarten. It applies, literally and metaphorically, to adult life as well. I recently had a dispute with a vendor over a bill because of some items that weren’t delivered. Instead of taking care of the problem, the vendor “hit me.” He replied with a nasty email that his company didn’t carry those items any longer. No refund of money. No apology. Nothing but an unprofessional email.

Focused on Freelancing
Being a freelancer is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it’s fabulous to be my own boss. One the other hand, it’s the hardest work I’ve ever done.

My New Best Friend, Thanks to Freelancing
I knew the day I started working from home was going to be fabulous. I didn’t have to get up early, I didn’t have to wear nice clothes, and I wasn’t stressed about arriving to work on time. Five friends and two family members called me that morning. Another friend called and invited me to lunch. It would have been rude to turn her down, so of course I went — after showering and getting dressed in “nice” clothes. (I’d been wearing sweats when she called.)
