According to Forbes, there was a rise in freelancing in 2021 alone - ranging from individuals who left employment to pursue freelancing full time to the individuals who have started a side hustle while working. Before you officially make the announcement that you've started a freelance business & you're accepting clients, there's definitely some prep work you should get done such as determining your business structure, where to open a business bank account at, startup costs, etc. & the bonus part, you can already start developing your project management skills while using Asana!
In this workshop, we'll be discussing - the current state of freelancing, freelancing tips & tricks & recommended teams/projects to set up. We will also set up one project with tasks related to setting up your business. By the end of this workshop, you'll already have action items to work on to help you start your business.
