Its no fun being a freelancer during the holidays, especially when cash flow is not as optimal as one would like. Instead of fretting about what to get clients and associates for the holidays, here are some ideas that could take you far.
- Reward excellent clients. I plan to give several lucky clients discounts on their services in the new year as a thank you for referring new clients to me and for paying on time.
- Find other freelancers and barter with them for services that you need.
- Recycle, some friends of mine are throwing a “white elephant” party. You bring items that you don’t use or need to the party and find something that you do need.
