6 Freelance Tips for Beginners

In the last three years, escaping the corporate world has become a trend. While it’s amazing to choose your own clients, your preferred working hours, a lot of freelancers are still struggling financially due to the fact that they are constantly chasing projects.

In this episode, you will…

  • Understand why it is important to not lower your rates when you start freelancing
  • Know the value of saying ‘’no’’ to free work
  • Learn how to upsell your freelance service

Insights:

  • ''To avoid any issues with a difficult client, record all communication in writing, even if you agreed on project scope over the phone. Once you ended that call, send an email repeating all that was discussed.''
  • ''Freelancing is a journey, not a competition. All you must do is to start now and get perfect later. And trust me, you will learn more from struggles, and sooner you learn, the better.’’
