Getting started – Freelancing on the side.

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. Even if your company downsizes and you are affected by a company wide retrenchment, the side income softens the blow. 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

Thanks & Comments on Wednesday's Network Event.

I was impressed by the turnout at the networking event on Wednesday and enjoyed the MC, the guest speakers and the 60 second pitches.

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.

Thanks to…

I met so many people that feels exactly the way I feel, and its great to get support or even a word of encouragement from someone. 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
