TOPICS: Freelance to Freedom Project topics range from operating a successful freelancing business to marketing a freelance business, all geared toward freelancers who are starting or expanding their businesses. Our readers love simple actionable tips on a specific topic or examples of results that can inspire them.

Our readers are both freelancers just getting started with a side-hustle, and those that are farther along in full-time business but are looking to expand and grow.

POPULAR CATEGORIES:

Operations → Steps to starting or expanding a freelance business, online tool reviews/comparisons, legal and finance tips, systems or processes for solo-preneurs
Marketing → Effective websites, social media strategies, copywriting, networking, launching, advertising, email marketing
Productivity → Strategies, software/tools, processes to minimize admin time for specific tasks
Inspiration to step out of a 9-5!
