Profitable freelancing: Starting a business and keeping it productive

From the description of the panel from the ScienceWriters 2010 schedule:

Freelance writers wear many hats: Writer and editor; CEO and employee; treasurer and accountant. Your job: Fill each role as efficiently as possible to maximize time in Writer (read: money-making) mode. You’ll need to be productive. There’s no shortage of advice out there, so you’ve got to be selective: Narrow focus on productivity can be, well, counterproductive. This panel will address workable productivity ‘hacks’ freelancers can implement, both online and off, to establish and sustain their freelance business with maximal efficiency and minimal fuss.

This workshop will include both a panel discussion and audience Q&A. An online survey, conducted in advance of the meeting, will inform the conversation, and tips and tricks from both the presenters and the audience will be made available to the community-at-large via a blog specifically set up for this session.

    After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four
    emails with the exact same comment. There has to be a means you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

    I comment each time I like a post on a site or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it’s caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I read. And after this article Profitable freelancing: Starting a business and keeping it productive | Freelancer Hacks. I was actually moved enough to post a thought 🙂 I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it simply me or does it look like like some of the responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at other social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to post.

    Could you make a list all of your community sites like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    The way an individual smells can attract or
    repel other people. Perfumes are normally said to have three
    groups of notes.
