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
These apps will become the catalyst to your next level. Lucky for you, I love sharing! I swear by these six apps and I think you should too.
This isn’t an app but I had to add this because your grammar will set you a part from every other writer on the Internet. People will take your business seriously. You could lose a job due to mistakes in your writings. Grammarly is a simple Chrome extension that critiques your writing and spelling in whatever web document that you are working on. This way you can see what mistakes you are making and quickly fit them.
Even if you only download one of these apps, I promise you you’re freelance career will be upgraded.
