“There’s a lot of mixed expectations about how wonderful it is living as an international freelancer. Don’t get me wrong, it is, but there are also some things that are not as easy for everyone. You're alone and a lot of days. You rely 100% on self-discipline. It’s also important to have emergencies covered. Get health insurance because if something happens to you abroad, the financial risk can be huge.”
Health insurance protects freelancers so that they don’t have to face catastrophic consequences to medical situations. We've partnered with Integra Global, who offer tailored international private medical insurance, specially designed for expats living abroad.
With the freedom of freelancing it can sometimes be tricky to stay connected to clients. Being away from the office a lot of the time means you can’t always grab a coffee for a rundown on what’s needed. Often you won’t be able to interact face-to-face, so your virtual chat needs to be on point. We've partnered with PowWowNow to help with conference calls.
We've partnered with iStock who can provide you stock imagery, vectors, and stock video that you can use on your projects, your blogs, social channels or even your own website. This will save you a ton of time and money. Try them.
I hope that helps
