We are excited to announce this special joint episode with our colleagues, friends, and superstar-podcasters Corinne McKay and Eve Bodeux! Corinne and Eve are co-hosts of the popular podcast, Speaking of Translation, which we have both been enjoying since before we even thought about launching our own. When Corinne and Eve asked if we would like to record a collaborative episode together, we didn't even hesitate to say yes. These ladies are wonderful to talk to, and we highly recommend that you subscribe to their podcast! Since we only have a few weeks left until the end of the year, we thought it would be a good idea to discuss a topic that is, or soon will be, on all of our minds: how to handle the winter holidays as a freelancer. Here’s what we talked about: • How we usually handle the end-of-year holidays, specifically Christmas and New Year’s Eve • What ideas we have for beginning freelance translators and how they might use the holidays to their advantage • How we determine when we need to take some time off and how we make sure we don’t sneak off to work a little bit now and then • What we send clients and colleagues as holiday gifts • How we let our clients and colleagues know about our time off and what we do to prepare for this break • What ideas we have for post-holiday marketing • How we like to wrap up the year and get ready for the new one Resources we mentioned in this episode: • Speaking of Translation podcast • Eve Bodeux’s website and Global Reads book club • Corinne McKay’s website and Training for Translators courses • Madalena’s T&I Website Blueprint Course • ATA61 virtual conference • ATA Back to Business Basics webinar: Handling the Holidays as a Freelancer • BoxFox • Zazzle • Asana • Todoist For a full list of resources, visit the show notes page for this episode: https://smarthabitsfortranslators.com/podcast-episodes/29
