Future proofing your translation business
Is your translation business future proof? The phrase future-proofing refers to the ability of something to retain it’ value long into the distant future. This relates to a business as something you’re building now that will outlast you and leave a legacy — without putting you in the grave from unhappiness and stress. This presentation will focus on three points to future proof your business, protecting and improving your business assets (translation skills, continuing education, finances), protecting your motivation and balance (focus, mindset, self-care) and creating a practical strategy for the future of your business.
