What are the skills of a freelance creative director?

Being a Freelance Creative Director

It takes well-organized and innovative professionals to be freelance creative directors. Beyond the technical aspects of managing a client's projects, they must manage their own careers. This involves being on top of expenses, invoicing, and taxes (typically done quarterly). They must juggle daily tasks while simultaneously advertising for more work. Therefore, properly marketing oneself is just as important as marketing a client. Savvy self advertising will ensure another job on the horizon.
