The global economic downturn changed many people’s views on employment. Some ended up homeless despite being well educated and holding steady well paying jobs for decades. This is part of the reason that freelancing has experiences such an upsurge. Many people want to get into a field that they can not easily be fired from.
Unfortunately, many of these people are completely unaware of what will be expected of them or what the task really entails. Here are a few good tips to remember:
Whether you wake up at midday every day and can afford to go to the beach every Monday or not, you should never slip into the habit of thinking that freelancing is like being on permanent vacation. You will have jobs to complete for clients and there will be no salary if you do not complete them as instructed. Your time will be flexible and this is its own perk but if you can’t do all you were instructed to do, you will feel the consequences.
There will be times when you have work outstanding fr several repeat customers and you have no clue how to get everything done on time. This can be stressful. Another situation you may face is one where there are no jobs coming in for quite some time and you cannot afford to pay your bills. You should structure your practice to make this less likely but it has been known to happen.
Working from home in any capacity can make you very lonely. You may notice that your circle of acquaintances shrinks a little when you no longer need to leave the house to earn a living. If you are a social butterfly this will hardly register to you but if you tend to stay home anyway, you may begin to feel lonely.
There are people who freelance writing poetry, novels, textbooks and even love letters. The demand exists for all different levels of talent as well. If you can adjust just a little bit, you can find at least one type of writing that you can make money off of regularly.
Remember these well as yo make your first steps into this industry.
