Self-Care for Freelancers During Stressful Times

We live in unstable times. The world is bursting into panic, anger, and separation. The pandemic, protests, global conflicts, economic crisis. It’s enough for a person to feel confused and scared. As a freelancer, I feel the impact even more because there’s so much uncertainty. We don’t have as many financial and social guarantees as our full-time in-house counterparts. Mass media isn’t helping either. Consuming information makes me more tired, angry, and disoriented. On top of all the havoc, put…

Dear Introverts, It’s Time to Promote Your Work

The current marketing trends aren’t the most friendly to us, introverts. No one can notice your work if you keep it behind closed doors, covered under a thick blanket. To be successful in the extroverted world, you have to find a way to let people know about your business and learn how to sell it. Being an introverted freelancer exposes you to many challenges. You have to earn your place under the sun and defeat fears of putting yourself out…

Freelancing in the Midst of the Pandemic

The pandemic is devastating to the global economy and job market. Millions of workers were sent home without further notice. But what about freelancers and independent contractors who mainly work from home on a project-basis — how the downturn will affect their work? Can the COVID-19 pandemic change the way we perceive freelance work? I’m a freelance writer working with a diverse client base, and I noticed that while for some businesses in the technology sector, nothing much changed, other…

Laikas atsikratyti žemyn tempiančių santykių

Pasauliui trumpam sustojus yra puiki proga atsigręžti į save – kas mūsų gyvenime einasi gera linkme, o ką vertėtų keisti. Kad ir kaip kartais giliai žiūrėtume į save, pamirštame, kad didelę mūsų gyvenimo dalį sudaro kiti žmonės. Kartais to net nesuprasdami gyvename toksiškuose santykiuose – mus supančių žmonių veiksmai daro įtaką mūsų savijautai ir jausmams.  Esame nuolatos apsupti draugų, šeimos, kolegų, partnerių ir prašalaičių. Jų laikomės įsikibę, net jei jie ir nėra geriausia kas nutiko gyvenime. Bet laikomės, nes kas,…

Ką daryti, kai atidėliojimas tampa įpročiu?

Prokrastinacija arba atidėliojimas yra kiekvieno mūsų gyvenimo ir ypatingai darbo dalis. Turbūt esi laukęs paskutinės minutės priduoti užduotį ar užbaigti darbą, o gal jau kelias dienas atidėlioji išnešti šiukšles ir kasdien virtuvėje atsiranda vis nauja musė. Atidėliojimas yra žmogiška savybė, tačiau vienas kitas nekaltas termino pratęsimo gali lengvai pavirsti gyvenimo stabdžiu. Įprotis atidėlioti darbus, ypatingai reikšmingus, gali ne tik priversti pasijusti bejėgiu, bet ir atimti galimybę tobulėti ir siekti užsibrėžtų tikslų. Pati būdama freelancere žinau, kad atidėliojimas yra plačiai paplitęs…

Meilė sau, tai ne vienas apsilankymas pas kirpėją – tai gyvenimo būdas

Kiek save pamenu, meilė sau ir rūpestis asmenine gerove man būdavo svetimi. Dėl to ir mano santykis su savimi buvo susvetimėjęs – jei kas nesigaudavo ar suklysdavau, bausdavau save lyg aršiausią priešę. Bausdavau ne tik bjauriais žodžiais ir negatyviomis mintis, tai buvo gyvenimo būdas – spausti iš savęs kiek galima daugiau, kol kūnas ir galva nebepakelia viso svorio.  Meilė sau, tai ryšys su aplinka, žmonėmis, darbu ir svarbiausia – savimi Pamenu dienas, kuomet dirbdavau iki išnaktų, tuomet nuvargusia galva ir…

Staying Sane When Working as a Freelancer

Recently, I was talking with a woman who works as a freelance graphic designer. At the same time, she is finishing her studies. As a fellow freelancer, I was excited to hear more about her daily routine and some working tricks. But she told me that the freelancing thing is temporary, and when I asked why, because she’s so young and already has a decent experience in her niche, she admitted that it’s too lonely for her. And it’s not…

Conversational Writing Is Changing Business Language for Good

At this day and age, it would be difficult to find a business that doesn’t have a blog. Blogs and written content contribute to generating a broader audience, creating brand awareness, and informing people about your products and services. It’s estimated that 85% of B2C and 91% of B2B companies use blogs or other content marketing efforts to reach and engage with consumers. But only because a business has a blog doesn’t make it useful. The common mistake a lot…

Growing up as a Feminist in a Misogynistic Environment

For decades, feminism and female rights movements have been opening doors for women and girls from all around the world: from the ones struggling for equality in the USA to women fighting in secluded towns in the Philippines. Although feminism has solved many issues that women in different nations face, we still fail to recognize the need for such movements. Some decide voluntarily to ignore or oppose it, and some don’t understand the actual influence on their lives. I was…

Reasons Why Women Choose Not to Have Kids

Birth rates across Western countries are dropping significantly, often due to people choosing to live childfree lives. Sex education, economic growth, women’s rights, reproductive rights, freedom of choice — all these aspects contribute to a new generation of people living for themselves and pursuing different goals than parenthood. I’ve never wanted kids. Since the moment I hit puberty, I knew it’s not my goal or a dream. When I got older and started dating, I brought this attitude along, and…
