Grant writing, web design, marketing… there are lots of ways that a freelancer can diversify, and with the current rough business climate, there’s no better time to invest in yourself than the present.
If you’re interested in professional development, you might want to check out the many online courses offered by State University New York – Canton. Even with the unfavourable exchange rate, US$89 per course is good value for money. Credit for this post goes to fellow PWAC member Laura Wright, who has taken several SUNY courses and vouched for their quality on the PWAC “L” listserv.
If any of you end up taking a course, or have taken one in the past, please post your experiences in the comments section below.
