My 6 favourite posts from The Freelancer’s Year 2019

By December 25, 2019 No Comments

I hope you don’t mind, but this is a bit of a lazy post from me. Come mid-late December my brain starts to dissolve in the Australian heat, and my idea well seems to run dry. So this week I’ve decided to do a similar post to one I did last year – a round-up of favourite posts. So in no particular order, I’m sharing my best posts from this year. If you haven’t read them, I hope you enjoy them, and if you have, I hope you agree 🙂

Happy holidays and look forward to continuing this wonderful freelance journey together in 2020.
