Still following Mom’s advice? Part 1.

Did your mom tell you not to brag? If she did, I bet she didn’t know that one day you’d be creatively self-employed and have to promote yourself.

In my latest Freelance Column for HOW Magazine (on newsstands now), I look closely at Mom's pearls of wisdom to see how applicable they are today, for freelancers and the creatively self-employed.

Listen to the podcast version here.

In Part 1, I focus on these three tidbits of advice

•   Don’t talk to strangers
•   It’s impolite to talk about money
•   Don’t talk with your mouth full

Find out which ones are still relevant (because Mom was sometimes right), and which ones need to be replaced with new rules.

And stay tuned for Part 2 next week.
