A year ago, I was employed full-time at an exciting tech company here in London as a Product Manager, and we were fast approaching the one year milestone for remote working — and then I quit to go freelance (missing a couple of steps in between, but that’s a story for another time). Here are a couple of things I’ve learned from my first year of being a full-time freelance Product and UX consultant.
