Do you know what factor really keeps a lot of freelancers from achieving their ultimate success?
If you’re like me you’re probably guessing things like “lack of clients” or “not enough skills.”
While clients and skills are definitely important factors in achieving success, they aren’t the only factors. Surprisingly, confidence (or lack of it) plays a huge determining role in whether a freelancer is successful or not.
In this post, I explain why confidence is important and show you how you can bolster your confidence as a freelancer
Early adopters are the first wave of users of technology products like software, hardware and social media sites. Of course, the term “early adopter” can apply to nontechnical products and services as well. In this post, we’re limiting the discussion to technology products since that is the area most applicable to freelancing.
If you wait in line to be one of the first to purchase a new product version (such as for an iPhone, iPad, or Android) or if you are among the first to sign up for a new social media site (such as Google+), chances are that you are already an early adopter.

As a freelancer, should you be an early adopter? The answer is, that depends… In this post, we’ll weigh the pros and cons of becoming an early adopter from a freelancing standpoint.
