Tips For Starting a Freelance Paralegal Business
In this episode, Ann interviews Eda Rosa, a freelance paralegal who started her own company to find better balance and more freedom. But, as she reminds us, there are trade-offs to consider when you’re breaking out on your own. Eda gives listeners the pros and cons of being a freelance paralegal to help you make a better-informed decision if you’re on the fence about breaking out on your own.
Sure, you get to decide how many hours you work and when you work them; but you’re still working for lawyers who have time crunches and urgent deadlines. Eda gives you tips on how she’s been able to make it all work.
