Dance Steps for the Self-Employed Editor

The details of this course was sent to me by one of the wonderful Buzz Words' subscribers and it sounds just the sort of thing I need. If I was in Melbourne I'd be there in a shot. Cut-off for rego is today:

Soc Eds (Vic) presents training course: Dance Steps for the Self-Employed Editor, with Jackey Coyle
To be successful as a self-employed editor, there's so much to stay on top of: marketing, administration, keeping track of the money, finding work and staying current. And that's above and beyond actually doing the work.

'Dance steps for the self-employed editor' combines information, discussion and activities across the five essential elements of being successfully self-employed:
* Getting it out there - honing your identity; optimising internet and social media; exploiting free marketing opportunities
* Mastermind - managing your business; controlling correspondence; optimising your billable hours; making bookkeeping your ally
* The money trail - budgeting for cash flow; establishing invoicing and bill-paying systems; sorting tax and GST
* Irons in the fire - brainstorming networks for generating work; managing conflicting deadlines
* Know how - keeping your knowledge and skills current.
When: Saturday, 25 February, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm
Where: CAE, 253 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
Cost: Members (Soc Eds, APA, ASTC, ANZSI, WV) $180, non-members $240. Tea, coffee and mini muffins are provided.
Bookings: close 6 pm 13 February. Visit for the forms.
