Contractor Yoga – by Jessica Dover
One of our Board members, Jessica Dover, has written an article for the Carolina Association of Translators and Interpreters:
We interpreters pride ourselves on our flexibility. The amount of contractor “yoga” we perform every day is pretty astounding. Balancing room space and equipment setup, creating glossaries on the fly, deciding if taking one particularly juicy job and giving back another is worth annoying your scheduler … the list goes on. It’s not easy, it takes practice, and most successful contractors I know are successful because they have mastered the art of contractor yoga. We learn to not fear the change but embrace it, work with it – in the end it makes us more money!
