We're always going on about the importance of ensuring you have the right licenses for any third-party media you use on your business's website or blog. 
So, imagine our horror when we received a letter from a disgruntled photographer alleging we'd used their image without permission.

Remember when you first started your business? 
If you could go back and give yourself one bit of advice, what would it be?
We're working on a campaign to support the next generation of freelancers: students and graduates who want to start their own business. And we think you'll know a thing or two that might help. 
Tweet us your advice between 2-4 pm this Wednesday, using #TheFreelanceWay.
There could be some free publicity in it for you, too.
Select pieces of advice will be included in a graduate guide, crediting you or your business. We’ll publish the remaining advice on our blog, and share across social media.
To get involved, remember to tweet us using the hashtag #TheFreelanceWay.

There are many changes you need to update your insurer about: 
A change in address, company, number of employees, or turnover could all have an impact on your insurance. 
Here's our newest School of Risk post on how an increase in turnover can affect your cover, and when to contact your insurance broker.

Do you collect customer data? 

If so, you should be aware that the Data Protection Act 1998 is changing. Soon one set of rules will apply across the EU, meaning businesses will not need to deal with member states’ varying rules. 

Here’s what you need to know about the latest regulation changes to data protection. Plus top tips for compliance.

Usually  #TheFreelanceWay  is all about helping other freelancers. 
This afternoon, though, we're going to be doing something a bit different. We want to help the next generation of freelancers: students who are graduating now and taking the next steps in their career. 
That's why we want to know:
what advice would you give recent graduates thinking of going freelance? 
Or non-graduates for that matter. 
To get involved, tweet us between 2-4 pm this afternoon, using #TheFreelanceWay.
