Freelancing: The Important Parts

Freelancing is an art, and a science. It is difficult to master, and notoriously hard to continue doing. Creativity is hard to call on a moments notice, and almost impossible to squeeze out with barely any sleep. Freelancing in general though is a way for us to take the things that we have done, and would enjoy doing on a day to day basis, and turn it into a lifestyle. It is more than work. It’s a way to be thorough in what we do, to be measured and critical, to be creative and artistic, to be judged and critiqued appropriately (and not appropriately), and most importantly it’s a way to learn.

Freelancing: The Important Parts

We can explore, captivate, love, and impassion with our work when we freelance, and we can do it all in one blow.

You will never have more challenges, more self-doubt, and more excitement than when working for yourself on projects that you care about. That quote up at the beginning of this article really resonates with me, and I hope it resonates with you. Because that is simply the truth of the matter. Though, it is a glamorous lifestyle indeed, it can be notoriously difficult to start. In this article I hope to walk you through some of those steps, and let you in on some of the lessons I learned the hard way. Also, I hope to give you some insight on the why’s of freelancing, as I know there is a large contingent of people out there who really are debating what to do next.
