Yesterday I received an e-mail from Tess Whitty about her new podcast episode, and as I had some free time I decided to listen in. In the podcast, she interviews another freelancer, Moira Monney, about how to manage cash flow. The podcast provides some great tips for freelancers, as our earnings tend to fluctuate each month. I was relieved to hear that I have already taken a lot of the suggested actions, such as having a separate business bank and business savings account, and paying myself a salary. However even for a translator with a few years of experience behind them, I think it’s well worth a listen! And after all, what better time to assess your finances than during lockdown?
