Summary transcript for 26 Jan 2012 #AWCchat: successful freelancing
Thanks to everyone who participated in our eighth #AWCChat on Twitter….it was one of our best chats yet! Don’t forget that we also kick off the 2012 AWC Freelance February webinar series on Feb 7, 2012 with writer, editor, researcher and author Liz Carmack.
There were four questions for discussion during this chat:
1) What are the top concerns you have about becoming a freelance communicator, if you aren’t one already? Let’s add that if you are a freelancer now, what DID concern you (and were you right to worry?)
2) No cube, but now what? Where is your “office” as a freelancer, and why do you like it that way?
3) Let’s talk pricing. Per hour, per word don’t always work. How do you set your prices? (Great discussion on this topic.)
4) Where and how can you find new clients? (we crowdsourced this question.)
Additional resource links during the chat include freelance job boards, decluttering a home office and how to think through pricing your services.

The next #AWCChat is scheduled for 2 February 2012, on the topic of mentoring – get one, be one.
Thanks for your support of the AWC (Association for Women in Communications) community.
