Freelancing with Naomi Nakashima, Freelance Writing Success Summit

June #GoalChats on Freelancing – Naomi Nakashima, Freelance Writing Success Summit

This week on #GoalChatLive, I was joined by #GoalChat regular Naomi Nakashima, founder of the Freelance Writing Success Summit, to talk about Freelancing.

Sunday’s Twitter conversation was filled with some great insights and advice.

On Monday, Naomi and I continued the conversation about the benefits and challenges of freelancing. We talked about how to set yourself up for freelance success, when and how to say no, where to find valued resources, the challenge of work-life balance, and much more.

Btw, the Freelance Writing Success Summit runs from June 29 – July 3. My session on Rebooting Your Goals is on the 29th at 11am.
