When I first started out as a freelance journalist and copywriter two years ago, I felt like I knew it all. I had established a few key clients, I had bought myself a brand spanking new desk from IKEA, and I had a year’s supply of coffee in my cupboard ready to go. Yes, I was that much of a writer cliché.
The truth is, though, while I was prepared to a certain extent for what life as a freelancer would be like, I really had no idea what was waiting for me. I’m a self-starter, and I love having my own company, so I felt that these two key attributes as well as the savings that I had managed to accumulate over the years were more than enough to ensure success.
One of the biggest benefits of freelancing with Nabbesh is the security of getting paid online. Seeing the employer put money into escrow (just a fancy way of saying into Nabbesh’s account), means you are guaranteed payments if you complete the work on time and according to the contract. After you finish work, you also have the benefit of being rated by employers, which increases your chances of getting premium jobs, being hired again, and getting paid more for your work in the future.
