You could probably list similar headlines. The Internet is littered with these types of promises. You’re probably just about as tired of seeing these headlines as I am.
Real success doesn’t happen overnight, and it isn’t easy either. Most of these success headlines aren’t useful to freelancers — they may have worked for someone in a very specific situation, but most of them are just scams or useless information.
That being said, there is real success advice you can use that works practically 100% of the time. Best of all, following this freelancing advice won’t cost you a dime.
Freelancing income often seems as though it is a limited commodity. It seems limited by time, limited by ability, and limited by the number of opportunities available. Many freelancers behave as though there is a specific number of freelancing jobs out there, and that once those jobs are gone there are no more jobs to go around.
That’s not necessarily how it works, though. First, there are new freelancing opportunities daily. Second, it’s possible to influence your freelancing income by making your own income opportunities.
In this post we’ll teach you how to maximize your income by both finding and winning opportunities that are already out there, and then by creating your own new income opportunities.
This is one of the toughest questions that we freelancers have to answer. It’s especially difficult when people close to us, like friends or family, are the ones who are asking.
There are many people who don’t understand what it means to freelance. There are even a few people who still think that we’re all sitting at home in our pajamas eating chocolate and watching television all day long. (You’re not doing that, are you?:-) )
For those who are accustomed to the traditional workplace, the concept of freelancing (or self-employment) can be somewhat fuzzy. You’ve probably heard some of your own friends make strange generalizations or outrageous comments about your freelancing business.
