I can say it is ok to assume that you want to quit your desk job and that is why you are reading this article now. Here are some tips that I hope will guide you to a successful freelance career.
In this job, convenience is highlighted since you work from your very home and own a space of freedom for yourself but bear in mind that working on something that doesn’t really interest you will only bring destruction and can lead to a failure. Knowing yourself and the things you like can be difficult for some because they are after the idea of earning as it draws jobs more of a necessity alone than a fulfillment.
This part will actually demand something monetary because we are talking about your setup here. You will need to have a silent space and an area that is conducive for working. You will need to have a good computer setup that can be valuable for heavy loads and long shifts. You need to also have a good chair which can support your back during long hours of work. A good background as well as this is already one of the requirements for some specific online jobs. This also covers your internet provider. You need a speed that can accommodate client demands and request and can actually run numbers of applications all at the same time.
This is something that I consider to be the most important one as this one will be your tool to impress clients so this should be orderly and tidy. You need to be straight with the details you will provide here because the clients will base your proficiency and your chance to be hired depends basically on how your curriculum vitae was properly presented.
Network is important so you have to come nice and always in touch as much as possible. Opportunities are the twin sister of a good and expandable network. It can help you in so many ways possible.
In a freelance setup, you must have the guts to always know when to ask and when to lay your cards as well. Some clients tend to delay the payment agreement until you do the job of asking. ALWAYS ASK FOR THE PAYMENT DETAILS AND LEARN NEGOTIATING BEFORE YOU START EVEN WORKING.
