Training

 

There are many instances when being self-taught can be a cost-saving way of becoming trained in a certain field. While this may work, you may be shortchanging yourself on many different opportunities you may have found putting a little money out to get formally trained.

Communicating with clients should be discussed before work begins and how many times you should be communicating per day or per week should be established.

Check-ins allow you to check in for any new work you may need to complete and also shows you are taking the initiative to keep your client updated on what you are working on and what you have completed.
