Freelancing offers a lot of freedom.
Set your own schedule. Work when, where, and how you want. Be your own boss.
But it can also be stressful.
Whether it’s last-minute deadlines, down months, or a shifting client base, every freelancer struggles sometimes.
The allure of freedom excites. The responsibility of freedom intimidates.
When a problem arises, there’s nobody to tell you what to do. When something goes wrong, there’s nobody to blame but yourself.
Every freelancer handles this differently. There’s no one-size-fits-all plan.
That’s also the exciting part.
There’s no one to guarantee your success, but there’s also no one to cap your income. Freelancing means having the freedom to find your own path. You can say ‘no’ to projects you don’t want and clients you don’t like.
So how do you choose what to do?
Feel your way through it.
Listen to what excites you. Talk to other freelancers. Treat your business like one big experiment.
And remember: you get infinite chances to get it right.
