Freelancing full time is a difficult, rewarding, and for some, very desirable option. Many people are foregoing stable nine-to-five jobs in favor of freelancing, and others are simply trying to make some extra money on the side. But there are a lot of unknown variables when you take the freelancing plunge.
How do you connect with clients? What sort of online portfolio should you create? What about taxes? Health insurance? There are a huge number of factors to consider. Here to help is Matt Crampton, CTO of Gigwalk. Gigwalk is a different sort of freelancing—they coordinate with businesses to find quick one-off gigs, which can offer supplementary income to independent workers—but Matt knows a thing or two about freelancing in general from his years of work.
Whether you’re thinking of turning a hobby into a business or are pursuing extra work on the side, let’s talk about freelancing. Have a question for Matt? He’ll be here for the next hour, so ask away!
