    Joy Mo
    I'm a freelance translator and certified Mandarin/English Court Interpreter in BC Canada.

    Other than being a translator I'm also a business owner and the author of "Goodbye to Feast or Famine". I'm running a website helping language professionals find Translation Jobs and Golden Opportunities with their multilingual skills and talent.

    With no formal business training, I obtained my marketing and business skills through my own experience of trial and error. From barely making ends meet to running a successful business, while taking care of two very young children at home, I know the challenges and problems freelancers face these days and how to deal with them. Today my business is still growing, but I'm devoting more of my time helping fellow language professionals build their business.

    I publish a free bi-weekly ezine "Translate Your Way to Success" helping freelancers attract higher-paying clients and create multiple income sources with their language expertise. For more information visit http://www.translators-biz-secret.com
