Freelance Translator, PR Specialist

I have rich experience in translation and PR sphere. Recently I moved from corporate world to freelancing and it was my best choice in life.

Now my husband and I are freelancers, we travel around the world and enjoy our lives. But at the beginning of our freelance careers we have made many mistakes and lost a lot of time on that, that period was really frustrating. That's why we want to share the tips and tricks that we have learned with other freelancers to make their road to success easier and faster.
