The lack of capacity and appropriate skill level are two reasons companies reach out to freelancers to help bridge the gap. While this partnership extends production and provides flexibility to the business, it can also become the source of their frustration. On the flip side, freelancers can be left in the stressful wake of working with over-demanding companies.
So, how we do get unified and work together effectively? We need to understand our respective intentions, know the structure of how we'll work together, have a system for managing projects, and create a harmonious working relationship. In this course, we'll dive into all four of these areas and more as we discover how companies and freelancers can work well together.
What are the four powerful ways? In this video we briefly summarize what they are and why they matter. This section includes two resources, one is a written introduction summary. The second is a downloadable PDF of the deck used for this course.
Now a full time freelancer, Jason originally moved to Atlanta in 2005 with his wife, Cait. He attempted to make an animated feature film, launched a political news website, graduated in 2008 from the Art Institute Of Atlanta, owned a marketing agency for seven years, and authored a book on flourishing in freelancing called Path Of The Freelancer.
He's also one of the three originators of IDEMA, a framework for capturing and sustaining ideas, and the author of a parable titled The Island Story.
In his journey, he has personally experienced and seen others experience the life of surviving in isolation. In his times of need, others helped and inspired him when he needed it. As a result, his personal aim is to inspire others to a place of thriving and togetherness.
What does Thriving Together mean for Jason? It means living in healthy community with others. One where his relationship with God, family, work, community and country are lived out as a positive example. An example others would aspire to.
