Although starting your business as a freelancer can be exciting at first, the realisation soon seeps in that it’s not all rainbows and roses.

We become responsible for our own paycheck and sometimes we are so eager to find that next gig, we let a bad client walk all over us.

From there it seems we are working hard and long for a client who does not respect our work, asks for revisions at our expense and is even late paying that next invoice.

Often it can be really demoralizing. Many of my peers have told me they wanted to return to the “real world” of employment.

If this is something that rings true, I can tell you that I have been there multiple times. My team has been there multiple times. Even now we still have to look out for the red signs.

We found having the right processes for managing our businesses and the workflows for delivering great projects, was paramount to the success of us and our clients.

And so we decided to get together with some of the industry’s leading movers and share our collective experiences in our 5 day Virtual Summit called “The Freelancer Process and Workflows Symposium”.

This international, weeklong event starts on November the 15th. We support two timezones across both sides of the world. This has enabled us to serve the globe while cherry picking the best speakers worldwide.

I am Mark Hunter and I firmly believe no one size fits all when it comes to freelancing. 

So I am truly honoured to have the oppotunity to bring you the biggest shakers in the digital industry to share the things that contributed to their success.

The team and myself are in the freelancer trenches every day and it has not gone unnoticed

I have had the privilege of being part of Mark Hunter’s group while also following fellow member, Marie Mason. Both of them have given me awareness in the world of freelancing to further optimise the client communication process while doing so with confidence, knowing I have a group of veterans to confide in.

Meryl Dayao

Mark is VA Networking’s Web Developer. His extensive knowledge in the underworld side of WordPress, from both understanding the system inside out to the programming aspects, was a critical deciding factor for hiring.

Tawnya Sutherland
Founder of VA Networking

Tech is pretty frustrating. I just wanted to launch my membership site without worrying about the nitty gritty. But I also wanted my independence. Mark Hunter took me by the hand, helped me launch while explaining things “my way”. And I really look forward to joining our next group call with our amazing family.

Elizabeth Hughs Callison

I needed to move my website from one hosting service to another. This can get complicated for the end user with limited technical knowledge. Mark did a fantastic job working through all the obstacles, and my site is working on the new hosting. Thanks, Mark for a great job!
