If you read my article about pricing for freelance, as a business owner, you may be wondering what YOU have to do to hire a freelancer. How much should you pay them? What deadlines are “realistic” to set for your projects? What is quality work?

As a small business owner, there are several items I need to run my business besides my Macbook and iPhone. (Technically, my business could run off of my iPhone alone. Technology is love.)

Through stress, tears, and developing neurosis, I have come up with some ways to deal with stress and time management.
