It’s my first year as a freelancer and I’m finding it quite depressing having been invited to ZERO Christmas parties, mainly because I’m no longer in-house. What do other freelancers do this time of year?! K
I hear you, K; without an organised office Christmas party to automatically bring you and ‘your colleagues’ together, a festive celebration can seem like the freelancer’s version of Mission: Impossible. And, it’s true that you kind of have to make your own fun when you work from a home office of 1 person (and possibly a cat who refuses to wear a festive hat or pull a cracker).
And while we’re often in contact with hundreds of people every week on the phone, via email and on social media, I’ll bet many of us are guilty of not often reaching out in person. So this time of year is a great time to do it.
How do you celebrate Christmas as a freelancer? Do you plan a mince-pie noshing sesh with your posse or just enjoy the peace and lack of a hangover?
