Ever wondered what it's like to be a #copywriter? The guys at the Professional Copywriters' Network certainly have.  If you've got questions about where they work, who for, and for how much, then check out a full report of their findings here.
The 2016 Pro Copywriters survey presents our findings from an anonymised online survey of 610 copywriters, conducted in December 2015–January 2016. We believe it’s the largest and most comprehensiv…

Do you get stuck for inspiration sometimes? Take a read of this. Our freelancers have been sending us their suggestions for where they go to get inspired. Whether it's in the great outdoors, sat in front of the TV, or in the bath, it's all in here. 
Still getting over the January blues? Us too. But fear not. #TheFreelanceWay can help. We asked what gets you inspired and you gave some great feedback. Whether it's outside in the fresh air, or even in laying in the bath. It's all here.

This week (16-22 November) is Global Entrepreneurship Week. There'll be activities and events going on all over the world to champion and encourage entrepreneurial spirit. 
If you have a hunch that being an employee isn't for you, but you don't know where to start, why not pop along to one of their events and pick up some inspiration? While the events are kicking off this week, they continue well into next year (check out the 'events' page), so there's plenty of time to get involved.

If you're a legionella assessor looking for professional indemnity insurance, there are a few things you need to consider. 
Certain professional insurance policies exclude claims relating to contamination - that's a big problem. Here's how to get around that, and make sure your business is protected.

How do you unwind? That's what we asked in #TheFreelanceWay last week. Here's what you said
While it’s great if you love your job; sometimes it’s good to switch off the 'business' part of the brain and relax a little. But what do you do? Bake a few cakes? Play sports? That’s the topic for #TheFreelanceWay this month. And we loved your answers.

Earlier this week the chancellor, George Osborne, gave his annual spending review and autumn statement. As well as the usual talk about cuts, the Chancellor also outlined how the government's spending plans could affect freelancers and small businesses. Here's our take on the whole thing..

Back in the summer, we asked freelancers what advice they'd give to graduates thinking of taking the plunge into self-employment. 
We used their advice to create a guide for the Next Generation of Freelancers. Here it is! 
Please feel free to share on your blog and social media.

We recently asked 1,002 graduates about the level of careers support provided by their universities.

The overwhelming response from the graduates we surveyed was that more could be done to support those interested in pursuing a freelance career. 62% of graduates said freelancing was not discussed at all by their university’s careers department, and 19% felt their uni could have done more. 

That's why we've kicked off our Next Generation of Freelancers campaign. By drawing attention to this shortfall in graduate support, we hope more will be done to provide them with the help and advice they need. Keep your eyes peeled for future PolicyBee graduate events...
