Writer and Creative Consultant, Karen Ferry-Fernandez, launches a double ammo — “Whatda! Anong Petsa Na?!: A Freelancer’s Sanity and Survival Planner” and “7 Stages of…Good Grief! Freelancer na Ko?!”– at National Book Store Glorietta 1 on December 1, 2017.
The author, Karen Ferry-Fernandez, gave out tips on freelancing and tackled issues like creating a full-proof contract, intellectual copyrights, how to deal with stubborn clients, and most importantly, knowing your worth. There were fun games that helped strengthen one’s focus, and another game that helped build cooperation among freelancers.
Aside from that, there was also an interactive work life balance board, a photobooth, and, yummy RaketChick treats!
Of course, we won’t end the RaketKamp without a book signing and photo taking with the woman of the hour, Karen.
“Whatda! Anong Petsa Na?!: A Freelancer’s Sanity and Survival Planner” is loaded with literature and specially-designed charts and fields to empower the business-planning control freak in you. Its uniqueness is in RaketChick’s witty way of breaking into a growing yet still untapped market segment which is very upwardly mobile in terms of income potential.
“7 Stages of…Good Grief! Freelancer na Ko?!” is a companion book that takes freelancers through the rollercoaster ride transitioning from ‘rank and file’ to ‘be your own boss’. With Raketchick as your ship captain, you virtually experience the seven stages of said journey, locking and loading you for the possible rough seas ahead.
