[WORKSHOP] Get started freelancing

How to Get Started Freelancing - Workshop for CFH Readers

Ever want to work for yourself?

Tom Ewer, creator of Leaving Work Behind and Paid to Blog, will be speaking with our editor-in-chief about how he quit a safe and lucrative job to start a business where he earns a full-time income while working part-time hours.

You can read one of Tom’s articles on setting rates here, or you can read about how he gets freelance gigs here.

During the workshop, we will discuss whether or not freelancing is right for you, what your service/craft/product should be, and how you can find your first few clients (and how to avoid the bad ones!).

The free workshop will go live on August 26th at 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern, 6pm GMT.

Reef Manta Ray (Manta alfredi)

…a large species of Eagle Ray (Mobulidae) which is widely distributed throughout the tropical and subtropical Indo-Pacific, although a few individuals have been reported in the tropical East Atlantic. Like its more popular cousin (M. birostris) the reef manta ray is a gentle drifter, travelling along coastal habitats whilst filtering the water around it for nutrients.

I Will Be Co-Hosting a Simpsons Marathon Live Video Stream this Saturday!

This Saturday, August 23rd at 9:30AM (Pacific time), I will be co-hosting a live video stream with Simpsons writer Matt Selman to be watched hand and hand (eye and eye?) with the Simpsons marathon happening right now over at FXX. We will start at 9:30am and keep going till viewers get bored. This isn’t sponsored by anyone, nobody is getting paid, it’s just a bunch of people from the show and fans of the show getting together in front of a laptop to chat Simpsons because we love the show. There will be a barrage of special guests, actors/actresses, comedians, musicians and a flurry of people who have worked on the show in the last twenty five years. It will be part Director’s commentary, part crazy characters, part special guests and part insanity. Or it will be none of that because I couldn’t figure out how to work the live stream. Either way-

So grab a Duff, join the live stream and enjoy the marathon with us starting this Saturday AM. As we get closer to the date, I’ll post all the viewing info on my twitter account- www.twitter.com/rejectedjokes
