Good overview on freelancing

"I have been doing freelance jobs for some years now, as a way to earn some extra cash. I took this course because I am seriously considering working full time as a freelancer. I got a lot of good ideas from the lectures and I look forward to putting them into practice. There are many good tips in this course on how to build up a successful freelancer career. I work a lot on oDesk, so the particular advice referring this site was very useful for me. I think this course is useful for anyone who is considering working as a freelancer, it gives an accurate overview on what to expect and the steps you need to do in order to achieve success." Lisa Court

"Explains this line of work : the pros, the cons and the grey area"

"I found this course essential to my daily work. The fact that as a college student, at times a wrench is tossed in our path, necessary life adjustments take in effect. Writing is a powerful skill to have, as long as it is good writing. This course introduces the student to an alternative non self-deprecating form of y income that can work around student schedules and can serve as that extra change needed when living from paycheck to paycheck. The curriculum commences by diving into the world of freelancing. It explains the pros and cons of this type of job or gig. Most places just will tell you “how great it is” and leave you to experience the cons which can be a migraine at times. Knowing the odds and ends always helps with making a well informed decision. This prepares you with the business aspect, the foundation. Many people have ideas and need that setoff wings to fly. This serves as the fine tuning and the extra push to start. I was very glad to see that the author took it a couple steps further. Instead of script form, [he] included personal experience, which humanizes the course, thus creating a passive mood where, students can say “Ok, I have been there!” or “I can relate to what he is saying.” I find, personally, that with examples that apply to real time or can be related to, tend to enhance the learning. Rather than listen and take notes to look over at a later time, it calls upon every single student to ponder on how it applies and forces an internal self-analysis. This leads to strategizing and implementing changes and goals in motion. There is so much information conveyed in this course and presented in a manner that anyone can comprehend. I enjoyed it and hope others do, because it is a true gem. Other explanations are one sided, while this one tells it how it is." Mrs C Mills
