Summary:Freelancers have to take care of each and every business activity, even if they work only for themselves and have no employees. Administration sometimes tends to take over a lot work time and it is necessary to have a good balance between the work you earn money with and the administrative work (that is necessary to earn money). Not to forget one tends to have a private life as well, which can be also quite absorbing.
This course is made to give an introduction about different aspects and techniques of time management, showing several approaches how to get things done in time and feeling good to have the control over all your different important tasks as a freelancer.
