It’s my favorite time of year!

After a long, cold winter in New York, yesterday I spotted my first “cold-weather-be-damned, it’s-officially-spring!” dude walking around in shorts. I respect the doggedness of these guys, because they know how to embrace a fresh start. Freelancers can do the same.

Spring is the perfect time to give your business practices a refresh. For instance:

- Does your contract have a clause requiring a single point of contact?

- Do you always have your client communicate project changes in writing?

- Do you know how to manage “scope creep?”

Whether you’re trying to figure out how to get a client to pay up, or you just want to establish better modes of communication, our April Spark event is for you!

Help get the conversation going early by sharing your tips for getting paid on time, all the time, in our National Spark Hive.
