Why do we need a micro-freelancer community?
Usually when we start freelancing we ask ‘where’s my first client’?
For Elina, instead she asked ‘where’s my community’ and credits her freelancer community for the transition to a soft freelance landing.
If you’re like me, you introvert you, you most likely cringe at the thought of networking and community.
But don’t freak out! As Elina puts it, the power isn’t in a million LinkedIn connections, instead “the power belongs to micro-communities”.

Here’s a hint…
Deliberate connection. And growing together with your connections through collaboration.
