Self-employed or Freelance
Label yourself as "independent [Job Title]" rather than "Self-employed for a year" to give your resume some real teeth as to not intimidate the potential employer.
No higher education qualification
If you do not have college degree, list down various relevant training/courses/seminars to replace "Education". label it as "Professional Development" or "Relevant Accomplishments" rather than "Education"
Leave out the years and date of graduation to avoid triggering age discrimination or maybe considered "outdated".
List down "Relevant Experience" to make a good heading and leave out jobs that are not relevant to your current career objective.
