The New World for Freelancers

Freelance Designer for Hire at Hodgson StudiosAs a freelancer for the last 16 years, I have  learned quite a bit about how to work in a tough economy. Since the “Dot Com” era, things have been pretty shitty for us ” freelancers”.  Fast forward to 2016 and people are still losing their jobs in the oil and gas sectors, and everyone is just trying to survive.  I have adapted pretty well because I don’t require much. I have no kids and my expenses and overhead is pretty low. That gives me some time to focus on what is really important, building something sustainable for the future so that maybe, just maybe I can have some stability.. And not have to worry about where my next meal is coming from. If you happened to land on my new site, then you are now witnessing a new phase in my freelance career which I will now be a ” Creative Consultant” sounds fancy right. When you get to be my age, things have to sound fancy or else no one will pay you what you are worth. I’m streamlining the process at which clients can book services right from their phone and rid both the client and myself with any hassle or negative feeling that may come about with working with a “freelancer”.
