What to do when you loose an anchor client

When you loose a “significant” client…

Revitalize your contributions – what you have to offer; update your website & LNKD/TWTR accounts; add a skill (maybe a MOOC); and – always be in contact with your professional network.

Thanks, Janine and Carol for the meaningful info.

Quick listen, good value.

I am a pharmacist who is interested in learning more about freelance healthcare writing, and I enjoy The Savvy Scribe Podcast! It is hosted by nurses, but in the June 5, 2019, episode featuring Tricia Chaney, freelance healthcare writer, host Carol showed how both medical and non-medical freelance medical writers have a place in the Healthcare Marketing Network. There is a diverse community available to support me in the HMN Facebook Group if I pursue employment as a freelance healthcare writer. Plus, I learned tips and tricks that will help me NOW, like changing my LinkedIn web link to include my name instead of a bunch of numbers. Thank you Carol and Janine. I find your podcast valuable and subscribed. I share Savvy Scribe Podcasts on my social media that my fellow pharmacists might like.
