Happy International Freelancers Day!

International Freelancers DayToday is International Freelancers Day. I’m taking some time today to look back at what has worked for my business, and things I need to do in the future to continue my success.

Catena Creations marked its third anniversary last week. I hit an important milestone this month: I’d been in business long enough that I had to renew my domain name/Web site address for anther three years.

Today I’m also participating in an online seminar hosted by the International Freelancers Academy. I can watch a presentation each hour, all day today, and it’s free of charge. This is a great opportunity to learn new things and prepare for the next year.

I’d like to thank my clients and friends who have supported me during this journey. They are the ones who have made it possible for me to keep going. They include Brett Frevert and Mike Alvano at CFO Systems LLC, Mike Mankin at Election Systems & Software, Dr. David and JoAnn Bouda from Bouda Life Coaching and Facing Cancer Together, Tom Sutko at AmeriSpec Omaha, Mike Obeng, DDS, at Emergency Dental Care USA, and Paul Simpson at Simply Flowers.

Thanks also to Bridget Lynch, Kristy Fortenberry, Bridget Martin and all the other wonderful people at the Greater Omaha  Chamber of Commerce. I’ve been a Chamber member for 2 1/2 years now, and voluteer with the Advantage Group. I have made so many wonderful connections through the Chamber, and have secured several new clients because of those connections.

It’s also through the Chamber that I met David Trouba of Troubadour Design Studio in Papillon. Dave and his team partner with  me for SEO and Googe AdWords campaigns.

I encourage  all my freelancing colleagues to enjoy this day and celebrate your accomplishments.
