Hi. I'm an indepentdant writer (freelancing). Been freelancing for about
a year. so far, i've been doing work for people i know or they know me
and trust that i will do a good job, no questions asked.
I've been getting a few calls from total strangers that want me to give
them a presentation. I'm petrified of the idea. I have a portfolio ready
and i prepared a presentation package. but, i'm too scared to go through
with it. what will they expect of me? How long should a presentation be?
