Getting some inertia behind your freelance business can seem like it’s never going to happen.
When you start off, you’re fighting frustration, money questions, and the challenge of figuring out which skills and niches will work best for you. The good news though, is that you can get past all that on move on to all the benefits freelancing has to offer, and probably with less effort than you realize.
Below are some resources to help you sort those things out, but first, a couple of points you’ll want to keep in mind.
- Smart habits are what keeps a freelance career going…not luck, skill or even talent.
- You need a niche. Of course, you can try taking any work that comes but specialists make more money and generally get better results (so they can earn even more.)
- You get paid to solve business problems (even if you’re a creative freelancer.)
- Keep an open mind to where your freelance career might take you. It likely won’t end up looking anything like you first thought.
