Hey Freelance fishies! Just entered this bowl and also am relatively new to the world of freelance. I make 3D virtual tours. But I haven’t had all that much luck finding clients. At least not a consistent enough client base. Covid has made it complicated to stop in and talk directly with people and because this service is so visual, my experience with cold calling is that it doesn’t work in this particular instance. But I’m not getting many responses from emails either. Any advice?
Sometimes my SO behaves like my worst enemy.... I am just sick of this... I mean.... I am home only 2 days a week... why all the negativity and spite ?

I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on.

Hey all, Been out of work for about a year now, been interviewing and actively since being laid off due to companys budget cut. Was in final / decision rounds before covid and everything has been tbd or rescinded since. Responses have been few and far in between and now the year gap is becoming a concern. Would like to ask if anyone has tips or can point me in the right direction. I come from a management consulting/prod mgt background in tech. Disregard the risk consultant title.
