Hey, Designer News. I launched a tool to assess the vulnerability / strength of a freelancer's business.
With my business, Jack, I’m trying to provide a personal and friendly way for freelancers to get insurance. I’ve noticed a lot of my clients (and freelancers in general!) could be doing better to protect their business, hence why I made this business health checkup tool.
I've included the importance of monitoring cashflow, having insurance, working with contracts and backing up your work. Do you have any suggestions of what else should be included? The goal is to encourage freelancers to build a bulletproof business.
Is there a product like Jack but for Europe?
Isn't it a European company? Ashley is Scottish AFAIK.
Not as far as I'm aware :-(
What about insurance for working equipment?
I always thought that if my mac got broken or lost, i wouldn't have cash to afford a new one and would probably have to find a full time job.
This scary idea didn't inspire me to save some cash anyway.
Great suggestion, thank you!
That's something that crosses my mind frequently as well.
Doh! Thanks for the heads up.
