  • Meet People – As a self-employed person, the value of being socialable is nearly unquantifiable(priceless). It helps you personally and can help you economically. Here are some ways to meet people and brush up on your jabber jaw.
    1. – I recently went to an Adobe Flash meetup here in egas(even though I don’t use any of their products) and met a few good people
    2. – I’ll be going to this event this weekend(June 25/26, 2011)(first one in Vegas) as a viewer(all the developer spots were taken)
    3. – I’m going to this tonight(June 23, 2011). It’s a casual co-working group.
  • Finances – Being self-employed can be a challenge simply because you are solely responsible for managing your finance records. These tools might help.
