Freelancing – Virtual Working

Contact-Wordpress-freelancerI have been freelancing for quite a few years now and love the reaction I get from most people when I tell them what I do for a living.  Apart from being a WordPress guru, I also make Apps for the Apple AppStore and Google Play – and this revelation usually leaves people amazed.  “But, you’re….” they start, then think better of finishing off that sentence with “…old?” “…not nerdy?” “…blonde?”.

 

I try to encourage friends and acquaintances who are looking for work to strike out on their own, make your own business, work for yourself and enjoy the freedom that brings.  I can work from anywhere with just a laptop and a half-decent internet connection.  I travel a lot and can easily fit my work commitments in with my travel plans.

 

There are a number of Freelance sites such as oDesk and Elance that you can sign up for and create a profile.  I haven’t applied for a job for a long time – I get invitations and can decide which projects I want to do, and am kept busy by my old clients.  I have built up very rewarding working relationships with clients from all over the world!
