Freelance Business Digest
Hello Fellow Freelancer,

In this edition, I would like to share some totally awesome news, upcoming events, developments within the Freelance Business Community, our feature in Forbes and helpful tips for your freelance contracts and price-setting.

You may have noticed that our brand has changed this year and that is with a reason. FBC is growing and it was the time to update the brand to reflect our mission and vision.

The brand still includes our favourite dots, but the meaning behind them is different. We departed from Belgian flag colours and wanted to showcase our mission of building and connecting {the dots} the global freelance ecosystem.

Ecosystem, like a nature, should be interconnected and therefore the dots colours represent the colours of the globe. Which also FBC's ''tiny'' ambition - to become the global largest independent freelancer community.

This new brand is now fully showcased on our new website. And because of the new web launch, we are throwing a pretty interesting incentive where you can win a nice amount. Read this post to participate.

---- you are probably preparing for summer, let me share with you our FBC books collection, which you may want to read during your vacation. You are going on vacation, aren't you?!

Enjoy the rest,
