Moral support Mar 31, 2011

The technical knowledge you may acquire, the legislation you may learn about, the techniques you may find out about - all wonderful, but above all, for freelancers, and for small businesses, the moral support to be gained from talking to the many others in a very similar position to your own is irreplaceable.

So, do go to these events if you possibly can - even though it seems expensive to travel, to pay for accommodation, to pay for meals, and in terms of time - because you come back feeling much better (especially if you can even think you are doing better than some of the people you meet, hee hee).

I may have to reconsider my non-attendance of conferences thus far!
