If you are considering hiring a freelancer, there is no better place to meet than locally. However, when it comes to meeting with a freelancer for the first time, we all have different comfort levels. That said, here are a few suggestions for meeting with a freelancer.
Meet at your local coffee shop.
Coffee shops are excellent meeting locations. They are usually filled with people working on their laptops, studying, or stopping by for a quick ‘pick-me-up’. Coffee lovers are everywhere, and chances are, there’s a coffee shop less than a mile away. You and your freelancer can sip cappuccinos while you discuss your project.
Meet at a nearby Public Library.
Free wifi, all-you-can-read books, and energetic librarians. Libraries make excellent locations to work because they provide large tables, reliable printers, and of course, the internet. Help yourself (and your freelancer) to great productivity when you meet at a library. Best of all, it’s free.
Desk Sharing Services
Feeling luxurious? Request a desk with a local desk sharing service. You can help yourself to your very own private office. There are thousands of locations, and they’re very affordable.
