I’m sure you’ll agree that the interwebs is swimming with free content.
But the reality is that some of it is great and the rest really is not. So how do you know what’s worth your time?
In today’s post, I’ve pulled together 8 great free resources for freelancers and business owners. These are particularly great for those just starting out, they’ll help hone your skills, figure out your niche, and what to look for in contracts just to name a few things.
So lets get to them….
1. SocialBee Copywriting for Social Media Guide
This free copywriting guide walks you through writing for every type of social media. And while it is geared towards social media copy, the lessons learned like crafting compelling headlines can be applied across all copywriting.
2. Straightforward Business Starter
If you’ve started freelancing then you’ve started a business. Make sure you set it up right so it can grow with you.
This free course walks you through getting an EIN number, deciding on a business entity, and keeping your business finances on the up and up.
3. How to Start a Virtual Assistant Business Today
In this super in-depth post, Kayla Sloan creator of $10k VA, goes over the 10 steps to starting your virtual assistant business right.
And she doesn’t stop there she also shares the Pros and Cons of being a virtual assistant so you can decide if it’s really right for you.
4. Contract Review Checklist
If you’re freelancing then you should be using contracts. But there can be a lot of legal mumbo jumbo in those things, which is where this next free resource comes in…
It’s a checklist/worksheet to help you take note of important parts of the contract and make sure you’ve reviewed and understand everything.
5. Rebel Boss Summit
The Rebel Boss Summit is a virtual summit that happens twice a year. It’s all about teaching how to create and sell a profitable digital product.
I’m super pumped to have been a speaker in the past, covering the legal aspects of selling your own products and I can’t wait to learn from the other speakers.
So if you’re tired of not earning more or feel like you’ve maxed out on your time for your business, check out this free summit. It will help you create a very scalable business.
If you missed the summit – or just can’t attend when it’s live you can grab an All Access Pass.
6. Legal Page Checklist
If you are freelancing or own a business (or likely both) chances are you have a website. If that is the case, you need to have a page on your site covering legal stuff to make sure your site and business are protected.
Ideally, you would hire an attorney to draft these policies for you but if you can’t quite afford that…
This checklist will guide you through the top 10 things you need to be sure to include on your site’s legal page.
