News and Updates

Time Management and Procrastination

This article is based on a presentation I gave at Freelance Camp TO on Sunday, October 3, 2010. Hi, my name is Elie Kochman, and for the last four years, I’ve been working as a freelancer. When Rachel asked me to present this session, I was amused. I had, after all, missed the deadline for […]
