My services:

I'm a big fan of gathering a bouquet of flowers from those closest to you. Meaning, a great way to start to grow your business will be to get your first few clients from people you already have a relationship with, and incentivize them for referrals to people they know.


Check out the How to Freelance course, or some of the other business courses from the library.

Hope this helps :)
