Your thoughts on freelancing as LLC vs employee? I’m about to set up my LLC but having doubts. Do agencies deny work if you’re an LLC? Are there workarounds for such situations? Thank you 🙏

Hey long-term freelancers! When do you usually give your notice? I’ve been working with this team for a year and don’t want to ruin our good relationship.

Freelance anxiety high these days, resulting in major insomnia. Any recommendations? I’d like to not get addicted to ambien and the like, if I can help it. Just smoke a bowl before bed? Other ideas?

First time freelancing. I am going to handling marketing for a small restaurant with a budget of about $1k per month. All digital of course. What should I charge per hour? It’s my cousin’s biz

First time freelancer as of last year. Got a 1099 from a company but I already paid my quarterly taxes on my earnings. Is this just for records of payment for filling?

Gotta love when clients get defensive when I ask when I should receive my check that is overdue. Is it that hard to pay within 30 days?!

FL tax questions: 1.) last year I had 4 longer w2 gigs. Should I get tax preparer or do myself? Seems easy enough but im new to this so 🤷🏻‍♀️. 2.) do you write-off travel/lodging for out of city gigs?

If we work on-site most of the time for W2 income, are we really even freelancers anymore?

If you’re on a day rate and asked to go on a shoot do you negotiate more money for travel, late nights, and client dinners?

What does a Senior Project Manager/ Senior Producer in the bay (San Francisco) make hourly? Weekly? I’m in the process of negotiating a new contract role and want to make sure I’m not under charging.
