Freelancing Lessons Learnt
In this week’s podcast, I consider the Freelancing Lessons Learnt by me along the way including recommendations for working with clients.
My first bit of advice:
Be an expert: when we are working in areas that we have expert skills in, we are faster, more productive and can really achieve so much more.
Keep learning: as your skills evolve you can offer more and give more value to your clients.
Trends: keep up to date and learn skills that are in demand and that are repeatable to have continued ongoing business for yourself.
Industry: what business sectors have you experience in (having worked in them) this reassures prospective clients because you have an understanding of the industry and the needs of businesses in it and its customers.
Focus on What is unique about you: what makes you shine and will make people wish to hire you? Do not be afraid of your competition.
Freelancing Lessons Learnt – Final Recommendations
Focus upon what inspires and motivates you to be the best you can be.
What are your goals for income for your business
Do not underestimate the importance of your health and happiness running your freelance business. If we are not happy and physically and mentally well we will achieve less
An interesting piece of research from Oxford University
