Taking the freelance plunge

It’s the start of a new year, and many journalists may have put ‘look into freelancing’ on their goals list. This post from Harvard Business Review, Is Freelancing Right for You?, asks many of the questions you need to answer before taking the plunge. Pay special attention to the part about asking what the market wants, rather than what you want.

Happy new year, and happy thinking.
