Why would anyone wanna freelance?

Got this from Nick:

“If the unemployment rate in the USA is 3.9%, why would you Not Want a regular job especially when it clearly a employees market better than in the Dot Com days.”

My response:

I want to homeschool my kids.

I don’t want to commute.

I want to be able to work the hours I want.

I don’t want to have a boss.

I don’t wanna deal with co-workers.

I wanna make what I want to make instead of begging my boss for a raise.

I don’t wanna work on projects I don’t want to or for people I can’t stand.

Need I go on?

It’s like I’ve said. I feel like it’s in your DNA or not. Me… I honestly think I’d go broke freelancing before I’d “sell my soul” and be some corporate “drone”. Okay, okay. Probably a bit extreme.

But, there’s 1000 reasons why I’d freelance over getting a regular job.

And, I know you just might feel the same way.

Question is… are you doing it?

And, if not… have you been lying to yourself about it?

Truth is… you can’t escape it.

It’ll just keep gnawing away at you.

Anyway, it’s your life.

Do what you want.

But, if you’re like me and want an assist getting going with freelancing OR growing it from a side gig into your full-time gig… check out my Freelancing on Upwork course over on SkillShare.

It goes beyond just Upwork.

And, will teach fundamental freelancing principles along the way.

That you can use whether you use Upwork or not.

And, you can get access to it for nothing.

Anyway, details on all that are here: https://skl.sh/2OIxQrO

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Thabo Motsoahae

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.
