Description
A Freelancer can have many temptations. Some are gross and some are very subtle. Some are time-bound and some are more permanent in nature.

This webinar lists various such gross and subtle temptations and ways and means to make them 'visible' so that we can analyse these with reference to proper perspective and self-immunize from these potential threats.

This analysis will provide a freelancer a kind of mental 'immunization' with regards to these temptations which can potentially cause significant short and long term damage to one's career and growth.

Target audience
Do you find yourself in a dilemma sometimes as whether you are doing the right thing being a freelancer ?
Or not doing something else ? For example, becoming an employee in a large corporation or in a small company.

Shall I be a partner in a venture with my friend / colleague ?

Shall I take a business loan and invest because the return seems to be very high ?

If such questions prick you and you find without answers and in a dilemma, you may be getting tempted. Be aware because if you are uncritical and unaware, this may do more harm than good.
