Hiring and Managing Freelancers

Freelancers can be both a gift and a curse to a small business (like the indie author business!), but it doesn’t have to be that way. We will talk through why many people struggle with hiring and managing freelancers effectively. 

Understanding the freelance business model is key to solving the mystery of how to work with them; aligning your projects and expectations is what opens the door. We will go through where to look for freelancers and how to mitigate your risks to ensure a successful project. Bring your questions so we can identify how to use this advice in different situations.

Thanks to Emily Leach for the excellent presentation! You can see the original Meetup event here.
