Summary:Free Webinar on those issues that impact you now and will decide the future of your freelancing career. Questions less asked and less talked. You will have a foretaste on themes like anxiety about future in general, changes in geopolitics and opportunity, work-life stress, how to plan for one's pension, how to manage one's reputation, transformation of work and implications. Sample tips, examples, advisories, case studies and do-able strategies taken from real life.
Target audience
Freelancers : Aspirant, Established and Leaders
Learning objectives
1. To be aware of significant (as opposed to urgent or merely important workflow/project) themes that shape and will be shaping our professional and social lives

2. To have a glimpse as how varieties of solutions, do-able strategies exist and how fellow freelancers are putting them into practice after personal and cultural customization

3. How these solutions / disciplines can make you face the future not with anxiety but with an excited expectation and honest preparedness

4. To analyse these issues in a deeper and broader way and to join the 7 episode journey with us spread over two months.

My business autobiography - Wordsmith Book of Business and a slimmer e-book From Wage Earner to Life-Designer [Li-Der] will be free gift for the attendees.

List already full- recorded version available for those who missed out?Jan 8, 2012

Dear Trainer,

since this is the first out of a series of 7 webinars (the first being free, the others fee based)- will those who did not get a seat on this now full first free webinar be able to access a recorded version afterwards? (also in order to get an impression of what's covered, before possibly committing to purchase any of the others) Thanks!

Dear Birgit,

Thanks for your interest in this series!

Those that confirm participation in any or all the webinars in the series get unlimited access to the webinar recording - that is whether you can actually attend the full live session(s) or not.

Hope this answers your question!

Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Best regards,

January 20th webinarJan 20, 2012

Dear Soledad,

I attended this free webinar and took note of the dates of the following webinars, the first of which should have been today, but I guess it was just moved to March 9th?

After purchasing the whole course I received confirmation of payment, but no access links.

Also, where can I find the video recording of this webinar? I would like to show it to my fellow translators, as this one was for free.

Thank you,
