This from the Joelsuf-inator:
“One thing I’ve discovered is that doing this DOES require the same kind of productivity as a full time job. Just because you’re making money from home does not mean you can just cut your commitment levels in half. In many cases you should be tripling your commitment. I’m discovering this now. Sure I can pick anytime during the day to work, but I better be productive for 8-12 hours a day like with any kind of job. Separate learning from marketing from doing work.”
I literally can’t say it better.
As sure as the Earth ain’t flat…
If you follow this advice, you’ll eventually succeed.
I can’t tell you how many freelancers I’ve talked to who get into it thinking they’re gonna work 4 hours a day, right from the start, and make more than they did working their 9 to 5.
You can get there.
But, not until you’ve put in years of work.
Building your reputation.
Upping your prices.
Honing your execution.
Getting to that point requires you to be willing to put in triple the effort. This is why I say, for most people, freelancing is either in your DNA or it’s not. Some people hear what I just said and think:
“Why the hell would I do that?”
Others are so allergic to a 9 to 5…
“Whatever it takes.”
If you’re the latter, heed Sir Joelsuf’s advice.
And, you almost can’t lose.
Now, the caveat here is making sure all that hard work is actually productive. If you’re gonna run 100mph, make sure you’re headed in the right direction. Otherwise, you’re running yourself ragged for nothing.
And, as you know, that’s what my Beginner’s Guide to Freelance course is for.
It’s the map.
The big mile markers along the way to get you to a REAL business around your freelance services. So, you can methodically build it to the point you can work as much or as little as you want.
Make as much or as little as you want.
And, ensure all your hard work pays off.
In any case, you can get access to it for nothing over on SkillShare.
