A new resource for “indypendent” workers

We’re excited about a new website, Indypendently, which was just launched by the team at Minneapolis-based marketing consulting and staffing firm Antenna. Indypendently is written by, for and about solopreneurs (you may call yourself a freelancer, consultant or solo worker). The site features articles by soloists, which cover everything from the considerations of going solo (“Should I?” “Shouldn’t I?” “How in the world will I?”) to some of the finer points of keeping your business going strong.

Below is a smattering of what you’ll find on the site. We look forward to seeing more!
