3 things clients should know before contacting freelancers

Contacting a freelance consultant to get a project started isn’t something that clients should do on a whim. Calling a freelancer to say that you want a blog post on the medical field is way too broad unless you are just trying to fill space on your blog and don’t mind giving the writer carte blanche with your blog.

Even before you have the first meeting with any freelance consultant, there are three things you should consider. It doesn’t matter if the consultant is a writer, web designer, or finger painter. You must know these three things before you contact the freelancer.

My Life as a Non-Closer in a Direct Sale, MLM World

I enjoy writing. It is a very soothing experience for me. Well, at least most of the time. Recently, I decided to explore other ways to make money from home. I joined a company as an "Independent Distributor." As it turns out, that was a huge learning experience that continues to teach me something new each day.

That only hurts the people who are trying to make a living.

How to archive Lotus Notes

Lotus Notes emails are subject to certain disk space limitations. When you aren't ready to delete emails, but are running out of room for them on the program, you should consider archiving the notes. This will enable you to have easy access to the emails without having to print them all out.

When you archive Lotus Notes, the notes will be stored on your computer. Because of this, it is vital to ensure that you have enough memory to accommodate the transfer before starting it. You can always opt to move the emails over to an external hard drive if you are worried about taking up too much space on your computer.
