The seesaw between “100% utilised” and “Yes – I could do that!”

Being a freelancer is hard at first – you take almost anything that comes along.

When you are little more established – there’s a balancing act to perform. When do you take work, and when do you not take work?

This morning I had to turn down an Articulate Storyline opportunity for next week as I am blessed with being 100% utilised for the net few weeks, however – should you leave space free for just such a contact or not? This was a GREAT client, and although it was below my usual budget would have made a great prospect going forward.

So – nothing remarkable in this post, just pondering how do people handle this sort of situation?

    Gee isn’t life amazing for some of us it pours and for some of us it is a drought – try coming to my world where it has all dried up. I am not an elearning pro but with over 10 years strategic experience in L&D – nothing ! Wanna throw some work my way? Good luck and enjoy it – you must be doing something right. All the best.
