Hap­py #Natio­nal­Free­lan­cers­Day! To all the Free­lan­cers I work with, and espe­cial­ly here, to my favou­rite trans­la­tor, thank you! I myself am a Free­lan­cer in my spare time when the oppor­tu­ni­ty arises. This is some­thing extra­or­di­na­ry in my opi­nion because, beyond the finan­cial aspects, “free­lan­cing” allows you to do exact­ly what you want to do, or a lit­tle more!

What is extra­or­di­na­ry is that we adver­tise our­selves, offe­ring our ser­vices in a par­ti­cu­lar exper­tise and we car­ry out our work in that exper­tise. This is pure 21st-cen­tu­ry crafts­man­ship. Obvious­ly, as the law of sup­ply and demand as well as glo­ba­li­sa­tion both bring great vola­ti­li­ty in prices, they also bring a wide varie­ty of styles, but also a variance in quality.

Here are some ele­ments that I put into prac­tice during my inter­ac­tions with freelancers.

  1. I don’t hesi­tate about giving new ones a chance.
  2. I vali­date the iden­ti­ty of freelancers/clients in non-stan­dard ways as much as pos­sible. Also, I make it easier for freelancers/clients to vali­date my identity.
  3. I start with small, but paid jobs. Trust must be built.
  4. I manage their expec­ta­tions, as well as my own. It is impor­tant that we learn to work toge­ther and unders­tand each other.

So to sum­ma­rise, what has wor­ked for me is: Hones­ty and trust. It’s hard to trust at first, you might even be foo­led one day, but tell your­self that free­lan­cing did not invent dis­ho­nes­ty and that the grea­test com­mer­cial crimes were not com­mit­ted by free­lan­cers, but by large indus­tries which had a wealth of trust, defi­ni­te­ly, but of blind trust.
