Freelance meaning what exactly? Defined as 'self-employed - hired to work for different companies or individuals on projects', being a freelancer means a whole lot more. It starts with a moment of inspiration, followed by a plan of action, and takes a lot of hard work. The Freelancer Club was set up precisely to help freelancers in the creative sector, provide the steps, tools, contacts and learning to achieve your freelance dream.
The Freelancer Club evolves with the demands and requirements of our members. So, here is your chance to tell us what YOU want from your Club in 2017.
We are extremely fortunate to have so many talented, passionate, and creative freelancers in our club. We see a lot of incredible work on the site but don't often hear about the journeys. When we were contacted by Jazzmine, who wanted to surprise her friend and Freelancer Club member, Miguel Villar, with a unique birthday gift, we loved the idea. Enjoy the story of photographer Miguel Villars in Jazzmine's words. Happy birthday.
