Volume 26, Issue 4 - Preclinical Studies
Out on Our Own
In this issue of OOOO, we start off with an important question – how do I prevent the risk of working too much? An apt question as we approach the end of the year, finishing up our projects and settling in to enjoy the holiday season. This is the question Belinda Cabral, our Berlin-based EMWA colleague, asked herself after she started her freelance consultancy and found herself working all kinds of hours. Many of us, especially in our early days in freelancing, have perhaps gone through such a period where every client was welcome and we were loath to say no to a project. While such a situation is exciting and challenging in the beginning, it can eventually spiral into a stressful situation due to the pressure of multiple deadlines and a heavy workload. In her article, Belinda shares with us certain techniques that she practices in order to strike a healthy work-life balance that allows her to enjoy her downtime just as much she enjoys her freelance business. 2017 has indeed been an eventful year for EMWA’s Freelance Business Group, and quite a few initiatives have been rolled out to enhance the benefits we offer to our freelance members. And I have taken the opportunity to share these with you in a brief recap.
Many thanks to all of you who have contributed to OOOO; your articles are indeed insightful and of immense help to your fellow freelancers. I would also like to reiterate my request to all our readers to continue submitting your articles and sharing your thoughts with us.
Season’s greetings and good luck for 2018!
