    What to Do when Caught Outsourcing?

    I should have clarified It is a potential client (not hired yet) No agreement to do work, let alone do it personally or not I just don't know how to respond to the message of him asking if it was me that posted a job with more or less the exact wording of our messages "Yea that's me. I hope...

    INTRO Leaving science for entrepreneurship

    My other alternative is to get a slowlane software job and work on entrepreneurship on the side. Do this. Don't freelance - gain experience in an industry, make connections, spot inefficiencies/gaps in the market that could lead to a business

    Starting a Copywriting Freelance Business. How well do I sell myself?

    I have to agree with Kak. Don't do freelancing and get stuck in the "freelancer trap" I did that and while it's cooler than a 9-5 since I get to work from home (and travel around if I wish), it's not a real business (unless maybe you build a service business around it) It's still time for...

    A Lesson in "Control" (from CENTS)

    So today I got an email from Upwork saying that my account is frozen. I am going to guess it is because I login from a lot of different places since I am traveling and working at the same time. Freelancing on Upwork is not exactly a "business" but I guess it can be dangerous relying on a...

    O/T: HEALTH Transcendental Meditation Course, Good or Gurudom?

    I know the trend is to shit on gurus but can someone who's actually tried TM comment? I've been meditating for close to 6 years and the only reason I'm kind of curious is because it is endorsed by super successful people as stated

    What do you think about South Korean education?

    It is too much I can comment on this as a Korean-American who has lived in both Korea and America It is largely unnecessary. Koreans just send their kids to afterschool academies (English, math, etc.) just because everyone else is doing it (Korean people don't think for themselves - I guess...
