How to communicate with clients, and why it matters

In any deal, and in every business, our clients are central to our work. After all, they’re why we’re here. We can’t do business without them. We need them and they need us.

The loneliness of the long distance worker

I’m a freelancer. I work alone, at home, and rarely see or speak to anyone during my working day. The family comes home from work and school at 4pm, and I tend to finish work at that point. But from 7am when they leave the house, it’s just me, a keyboard and my radio.

Keeping everyone progressing on a project and moving forward together can be harder to do when you’re not all in the same place. And what if something goes wrong?

New managers, your company needs you

There’s a first time for everything. In both our personal and our working lives, we learn as we go. These moments provide opportunities to grow, to improve, and to enrich our lives. These new hurdles can also be intimidating.
