Doing freelance work while working a 9 – 5 job holds two benefits. First, it diversifies your income stream. You no longer have a single salary to pay your bills.

Secondly, freelancing for clients is the best way to show off your skills and impress potential employers. You will be able to get the word out, establish a client base, build a fabulous portfolio and set your own… Continue

All good except for a very confusing comment by Brett from Invenfin. How can you justify a comment along the lines of.... .. "if it hasn't been done before , it is a problem and if it has been done before, it is a problem" You lost a few of us here but thanks for all the other interesting observations and useful advice.

We can certainly do with more networking events in Cape Town like this. Thanks for the platform to meet like minded people and get some fantastic… Continue
