When I first got laid off from my full time job I panicked. That is, until someone convinced me that freelancing could be a very lucrative business for me. This career path has allowed me to build skills I would have never learned otherwise. I’ve also managed to double the salary that I was making at my full-time job.
So what’s the catch?
The burnout rate is high and rapidly growing. If you don’t have stellar organizational skills and a business strategy (because this is your business), it’s easy to lose control over your budding empire. Contracts will be lost, you’ll damage your reputation and soon you will stop booking jobs altogether.
Here’s the good news!
There's tons of apps perfect for freelancers
