Freelancers' Questions: What makes a good freelancer?

Freelancer’s Question: What makes a good freelancer?

Expert’s Answer: Here are five top tips that have worked for freelancers I work with:

1. Listen and get underneath the business you are working in and adapt, quickly!

2. Always be prepared to define your own role and sense of purpose.

3. Build positive relationships by adding value and sharing knowledge.

4. Set out what you intend to deliver and never miss a deadline (without giving advance notification)

5. Keep focussed on delivering results, check in regularly with the client and make it your number one priority to be an asset to their business.
