Today's the day for #TheFreelanceWay  knowledge exchange.
Do you have a question for your fellow freelancers or perhaps you fancy sharing your own knowledge and experience.
Join us 2-4pm on Twitter
 
18 - 24 May is Learning at Work Week. 
Organised by a charity called The Campaign for Learning, this is an opportunity for businesses to be creative, and learn some new skills to improve the way they work. 
In the spirit of this, we want this month's #TheFreelanceWay  to be an opportunity for freelancers to learn something new. 
We'll be running a knowledge exchange on Twitter. If you have a business problem, share it with us between 2-4 pm on Wednesday 13 May. 
Running a business involves a lot of trial and error, so it's likely someone else will have the answer you're looking for. And if you see a problem posted by someone else that you feel you could answer,  get involved and tweet them your solution.
Don't forget to use #TheFreelanceWay  so your brilliant tips will get seen!

We love hearing the stories behind our customers' businesses. Not only does it help us protect you better, but we're also just quite nosy. 
This business story comes from Open To Create... 
They run creative workshops to help business leaders gain confidence and inspiration. They've worked with institutions like The V&A, Transport for London, and the Dulwich Picture Gallery, so they should know a thing or two about inspiring creativity. 
Over to their director, Anna B. Sexton, for more information...

Ever wondered what you should be doing to keep your insurer sweet? Or what really gets their goat? 
Check out our School of Risk guide to 10 things your insurer really doesn't like.
Of course, the best way to know what's covered, and what's not, is to familiarise yourself with your policy wording. But if you have five minutes, and  you want to learn a thing or two, this post is a great place to start. 
Enjoy!

Have you heard of Zoe Sugg? 
What about Zoella?
The vlogger has racked up over 7 million subscribers to her YouTube channel since 2009. She's also published a novel, launched a range of beauty products, sung on the new BandAid single, and appeared as a panellist on Loose Women and This Morning. 
Not bad, considering she's only 25. 
How does she do it? Like many vloggers, Sugg has put a huge amount of effort into cultivating her personal brand. 
Here's how small businesses can follow her example, and create a personal brand to be proud of... 
Start by identifying your goals and make sure you filter what you say online, advises Ciaran Burke

Did you know there are two different types of indemnity insurance? 
One for people buying or selling a house, another to protect small businesses. Needless to say, it's important to know the difference, and to know when you'd need each kind of cover. 
This quick guide on our School of Risk can help.

Did you pop in for #TheFreelanceWay  knowledge exchange over on Twitter yesterday? We were encouraging freelancers to share their problems, and answer someone else's.

Next week is Learning at Work Week, so we wanted to make May's #TheFreelanceWay as educational as possible. We ran a knowledge exchange, where freelancers could post their problems, and share advice. Here's what they said...

Hey, architects! 
April saw some changes to CDM regulations that could affect you. Perhaps most importantly, the CDM co-ordinator role no longer exists. It's been replaced by a new 'principal designer' function. 
Here's what these changes mean for you, and how they could affect your insurance.
