Top Tip #8
Become a freelancer as well as a business person. Write articles about subjects within your expertise and demonstrate your professional stature. This will build your professional reputation and people will link this with your business. You can contact local magazines, papers or niche publications like Dezeen and MyDeco.com. Also, many educational bodies like The National Design Academy in Nottingham, (specialists in Interior Design Distance learning courses) commission expert writers to help develop course material for their students. This is a great opportunity to educate others and offer your industry expertise.
