Any long-term freelancer will tell you that most freelancers go through ups and downs–periods of high pay and periods of low pay. But the feast or famine cycle can take new freelancers by surprise.
While there are definitely some steps you can take to avoid the feast or famine cycle, for many freelancers the real questions is this–”How am I going to get through this slow period?”
In this post, I’ll provide five tips for surviving your freelancing famine periods (plus a bonus tip). Even if you’ve been freelancing for a while, you may find a freelance survival tip that you can use.
Are you struggling as a freelancer? It could be that your personality is to blame.
Of course, there are many types of successful freelancers. So, your personality type need not be an obstacle to your success. But sadly, it often is.
In this post, I’ll list some common personality types and explain some of the freelancing challenges that are specific to each type.
How are you feeling today?
I hope you’re feeling well, but the sad truth is that freelancers are just like everyone else. We get sick sometimes.
Unlike other workers, however, freelancers don’t have paid sick time. There are a lot of perks that go along with freelancing, but taking a paid day off when we’re not feeling well is not one of them.
An illness doesn’t have to derail you as a freelancer. There are some steps that you can take to help yourself out when you’re sick.
In this post, I share nine tips that freelancers can use when they’re sick. Each tip can be used by itself, or you may be able to make use of several tips.
If you’re like me, you’re probably watching the news about the economy. Unfortunately, a lot of that news is bad (at least recently). You’re probably hearing about layoffs, companies in trouble, people losing their jobs, and to top it all off–prices going up.
As a freelancer, such news probably makes you nervous. You may be wondering if it’s really a good time to be a freelancer. You may even be thinking about returning to traditional employment.
Let’s face it, it’s normal to be a little nervous about the economy right now. This economy has a lot of people concerned…even nonfreelancers.
In this post, I’ll list five economic trends as they relate to your freelancing business.
