Didn’t know freelancers had their own official dictionary, did you? Here we go with the ten best definitions from the official version:
Brief: Document containing project specifications and costs. Also what you should really put on along with a pair of pants while working.
Coffee: Second only to blood as your most vital bodily fluid.
Networking: Asking complete strangers if they can hook you up with work without explicitly asking if they can hook you up with work.
Non disclosure agreement: Like newspaper comics, one of the funniest reads you’ll ever find.
Outsourcing: Finding some poor sap to do your work for you much cheaper. Lazy bastard.
Portfolio: A compilation of the best work you were able to find on the internet.
Side income: Income made from activities other than your normal work. Gambling, Nigerian check scams and credit card fraud are common activities.
Sleep: Some swear word or something. I don’t know.
Taxes: An evil bully who steals your client payments as if they were lunch money.
Under the table: The client payments you can actually spend yourself.
