time is currency, how well do you spend yours?

HOW FREELANCERS ARE REDEFINING SUCCESS TO BE ABOUT VALUE, NOT WEALTH Time is a new currency and successful freelancers manage, save, and spend it wisely.

Consultants, Freelancers; Will You Have a Saleable Asset When You’re Done?

Back in April 2013, I asked the following questions… I wanted to check in and see how you’re going with mapping your exit? Are you currently working as an independent practitioner? a consultant? a freelancer? Is this how you see the rest of your working life playing out? Have you given any thought to your Exit Strategy? Have you even wondered whether you could have one? Are you saying to yourself “what have I got to sell anyway?” Time we had a chat… The differing business models of which I spoke have taken shape very nicely. They enable a fair…

there are many ways to Exit….

Met up with one of my favourite clients today. We have been on the “start with the end in mind” journey for 18 months and it continues to evolve.
