Are you a freelancing perfectionist?
You know who you are. Even now, while you’re reading this very post about the dangers of perfectionism, you’re consciously or subconsciously beating yourself up because you think you’re not good enough.
You think you should be able to write faster, code faster, or translate faster. You think your work should be more than good–it should be the very best. You think that you’re not earning enough, even though you’re living comfortably.
And the list goes on, and on, and on…
You’re only hurting yourself, and by extension, your freelancing business. In this post, I’ll explain why perfectionism is such a danger for freelancers. I’ll also share some tips on how you can overcome perfectionism. Finally, I’d like to hear how being a perfectionist has affected you.

Years of hearing from freelancers have convinced me that many freelancers actually have a love/hate relationship with their freelancing business. They love to be a freelancer some of the time, but other times they secretly wish that they weren’t doing it.
They might even feel slightly guilty about their ambiguous feelings. However, freelancers really have no reason to feel guilty. There are plenty of good reasons for the love/hate relationship that freelancers have with freelancing.
We’ll explore some of those feelings in this post. I’ll also explain how you can use your love/hate relationship with freelancing to move to a position of freelancing strength.

They’re fuzzy and cute. But did you know that you could also benefit just by having them around?
I’m talking about your pets, of course. Whether you have a dog, a cat, or even a fish–there are some definite benefits to freelancing with pets.
Fortunately, as freelancers, we are able to have our pets with us when we work. In fact, I was startled to see that many of the comments on a recent FreelanceM.ag post were about freelancers and their pets. Once I realized how beneficial pets really are, though, the comments made a lot of sense.
