Audience actively directed many of their queries  to the guest speaker where he clearly described the best procedure to launch a  successful career  as a freelancer .Even if the short period of time was not enough to cover the broad subject of online entrepreneurship and flew away quickly even before we notice because of the informative yet interesting nature of the discussion through the feedback received from the audience it was quite evident that the time spent  was indeed worth it .
