GTS 2006 Ahoy!

I’m off for the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas on Sunday. If you’ll be out there (it’s for gaming industry professionals only, I’m afraid), give me a shout.

Advanced Freelancing
For the committed professional who now derives the majority of their income from freelancing in the game industry, there are whole new challenges to consider. Topics of discussion include: effective time and project management, tax planning for the self-employed, handling royalties, and legal recourses for the Freelancer.

If it’s vital you get a hold of me at the show, shoot me an e-mail, and we’ll set up an appointment. My time in town is short, so it’s always best to schedule these things ahead of time if we can. See you there!

For the rest of you, if this blog suddenly gets quiet, now you know why.
