Should You Even Be Freelancing? (Hint: Exciting Stats Below)
I get it.
You once thought the life of a freelancer was what you desired.
You know, getting up anytime you want. Working from anywhere in the world. Never changing out of your PJs.
Except, it’s not like that for you.
You get up super early just to check if your cold pitches have resulted in even one new gig.
You spend hours of your time on a project that pays $5.
Your work late into the night, desperately wondering if you should have stayed at your nine to five. (At least work ended in those days.)
All this makes you think, “Should I just quit? Should I even be a freelancer? Do I not have what it takes to be like the successful freelancers in my space?”
If this is you, I’m here to tell you that you’re in the right place.
As freelancers, it’s only natural to go through this stage.
You know, the stage where you’re getting a few hard-earned but low-paying clients, and you have no idea where to go next.
The stage where you do have a tiny trickle of projects, but it’s a come and go thing – nothing steady.
If you’re here, congratulations!
You’ve made it this far, and all you need now is to learn what the next step forward is.
So, should you continue being a freelancer? Is there any promise for you in this kind of business?
Check out these stats to inspire you:
- Content marketing is now worth $400 billion, and experts predict it will be worth $600 billion in the next three years (which means if you offer content as a service, there are clients out there dying to meet and hire you).
- The industry is packed with success stories of freelancers who followed the right steps and earned amazing success, such as Elna Cain, our guest teacher for this session, who earns $250 per blog. (And she’s a full-time and dedicated mom!)
So if you’re doubting and second guessing, wondering if freelancing is even worth it…
…it’s time to stop right now.
You are great.
Freelancing is the future.
All you need to do now is learn how to get from “starting out” to “success.”
