Thea Teich, Owner and Principal, Teich Technical and Marketing Communications, originally presented 25 March 2015

After her first 20 years as a technical communicator with nonprofits, government agencies, and corporations, Thea Teich “went out on her own,” working as an independent. In 2015, she will have worked 20 years this way. This webinar describes her myriad experiences: why and how clients came and went; how to deal with inconsistent workloads, work flows, and payments; how to handle the hassles that take much more time than they should, and why you should embrace the fact that cats will get on the keyboard—among other things. Despite all this, Thea has no desire to ever be a “captive employee” again. Come to this session if you think you might like to work this way.
