The remote nature of freelance work opens up the potential to seek opportunities in other countries and cities. It's no longer necessary to work in the same city as your clients, or limit your business to the local market. Or perhaps your mobile work arrangement has inspired you to travel from someplace else, and are now looking to find clients locally. The mobile perk comes with some particular concerns like how to build trust with someone you're not able to meet and work with in person. And the logistics of working in different timezones, currencies, taxes etc. There are cultural considerations to navigate too. For example, the way you would approach a prospect in France isn't necessarily going to work for someone in North America or the UK, and vice versa. Are you an expat looking to break into the French market? Or a French freelancer interested in extending your services to clients in other countries? Let's swap stories and tactics for making the most of our remote status! If you have any other ideas you'd like to share, or freelancing problems you'd like to get some advice on, bring them to the discussion! The venue, Francis LaButte, is near Lamarck-Caulaincourt metro in Montmartre. And I'll put a Meetup sign on the table so we're easy to find. There is no fee to join, but considering we're meeting at a café the staff will likely expect that you order at least a drink or coffee. Please RSVP if you'll be joining, so we can reserve enough seats. And if you've RSVP'd yes, but something comes up and you can no longer make it, please remember to change your RSVP to no. That way, someone else can take the place. Thanks, see you there!
