There’s plenty of work in Freelance! I don’t know about you, but I’ve noticed that starting as a freelancer, I spent a lot of time figuring out how to start and get the work.
The same thing is happening now for my other companies. I’m busy finding out how to get the best freelance work for The Fitness Sanctuary, The Travel Blog, and CodeBlaze.
So it’s exciting to get the work rolling and see how that works, how I can move from a one-person shop to a business that gets clients more than it spends.
What’s The Best Way To Freelance? How Can I Figure Out If Freelance Is The Right Career For Me?
The first thing I think about is how much freelance work I need to do to make money. I need to make enough money to keep going, take care of a mortgage and build up an emergency fund.
- So I look for the projects I can take on that are freelance. It is one reason I started blogging. This blog lets me start my freelance career because it’s a project that’s Freelance. That’s a huge advantage
- The second thing I look at is how much freelancing experience I have. I have a blog. I have experience with the freelance industry.
So now, I’m looking for freelance projects that give me the experience I need to move from freelancing to getting my clients. It is how I figure out if freelancing is a good career path for me.
What If I Need Work That Isn’t Freelance By Blog?
We talked about Freelance by blog. That’s a great way to start. If I have a small business that I need to pay for my bills, it would be great to find clients. I’ve found some great projects on blogs that aren’t freelance. The blogging networks are huge, and they’re filled with Freelance blog projects. Freelance By blog is a little niche in blogging.
But the opportunity to get clients isn’t limited to freelancing by blog. It’s a wide variety of opportunities that can start me out in a freelance blog business. The great thing about the blogging networks is that it’s not limited to a niche. It’s not limited to bloggers.
There’s An Opportunity For Anybody Who Has A Blog And Wants To Get Freelance My Blog Projects.
I’m a freelance blog blogger, and people read my blogs. My blog doesn’t attract a lot of subscribers. But if someone searches for freelancing by blog projects, I’m in the top 5,000.
If I see the request for work on Freelance By Blog and take the client, I have done my job. It’s not just a nice side project and become a profitable side business for me.
It’s a wide variety of opportunities: Design projects, WordPress projects, HTML, CSS projects, advertising projects.
In addition, there are business development projects, marketing projects, monetization projects, creative projects, social media projects and blogging.
It is the list of the projects that I’ve seen on Freelance By Blog, and this is a little bit of a roadmap of the projects I might do. It’s a set of opportunities that are usually a quick turnaround. If I needed to work for two or three months or a year, I could get a lot of money. I could get a lot of income.
Maybe I’ll find a great opportunity as I did with Freelance By Blog, which will start a big project. I’ll work it out, and I’ll make money. I could get stuck in a project. I could find myself spending six months on a project that I can’t get out of. Maybe it’s great money or I’ll get stuck in a project because it’s great to work on.
I think the best way to do it is to try to go Freelance by blogging first. It’s a great way to get experience to get paid. So I want to be a freelance blog blogger. But if the opportunity is there for me to Freelance by blogging or Freelance by non-blogging or Freelance by website, then I’ll take that. So that’s my chance to move from Freelance by blogging to freelancing.
So I see all these different opportunities where I can get paid. All I need to do is read the blog, check it out, and see what it’s about. That gives me a chance to build an emergency fund.
What Do I Do With An Emergency Fund?
What do you do with an emergency fund? It’s not a pile of money sitting in the bank. It’s something that helps you when things go wrong.
It is how I’ve used my emergency fund for over two years. I use an emergency fund when I’m doing a project, especially if it’s not just a blog project. I like to think about this and see if the project has a risk or not. If there’s no risk, then I’ll take the project.
So what do I do with my emergency fund? When I’m not doing a blog project and not an advertising project, I put money in my emergency fund. It’s something that’s not a real safety net and more of an insurance policy, which I guess is okay.
It’s not like I use the insurance policy for emergencies. I know that if I need it for an emergency, I can get it. If I’m losing money on my blogging projects, I can get it to be safe. If I’m getting laid off, I can get it to be safe. I want to ensure that I’m never in a position where my emergency fund gets spent, and I don’t get it back.
An Emergency Fund Is The Only Safety Net You Need
I started my emergency fund when I was blogging by blogging and always paid the bills for a certain period; I always paid myself. But I also put an emergency fund in the bank. I collect that money and deposit it in my bank account. That way, if I needed it for an emergency, it was there.
It’s just the safety net of the emergency fund that I needed when doing those freelancing jobs. So I take leave for a month and a half. I ended up getting a new job. The second job I took was a writing project.
So I did a lot of freelancing work. It was a good chance for me to freelance by blog, Freelance by advertising, and Freelance by the website. So the freelancing I did was a test.
It wasn’t the worst kind of freelancing. It wasn’t the worst thing in the world, but I wouldn’t say I liked it. But I did it because it was something that I could do. I was getting paid to do it and making good money, and it was kind of exciting. I was going to try to freelance by all these different things.
Suppose it works out, great. If it doesn’t work out, I’m going to have that emergency fund. I’m going to have that safety net. I’m going to have that insurance policy that will keep me afloat if I get laid off.
At some point in your career, you’ll get that chance. That is the test, and you will get laid off, which will be a scary time. But, if you put that emergency fund in, you’ll be covered.
I’ve done some freelance jobs that I’m proud of. But I didn’t get paid for it. I was writing about life for a website.
It was stressful because I would be writing for that website, and I wouldn’t get paid. So it was okay and stressful, but It wasn’t something I liked. But it worked out in my favour. Because I did some freelance work that paid me well, I built that emergency fund.
Moreover, I did it so that I didn’t feel like I was putting my money at risk for something completely unconnected. I made some money, and I put it in an emergency fund. So that’s what I did.
That’s what an emergency fund is all about. It’s getting important things to you so you can have those safety nets if you need them. That’s why you have a safety net. That is the reason to have an emergency fund.
Earn More Money
I’m going to put my income in the past. Because when I was making money for the different companies I had been working for, I didn’t pay myself a ton of money. I did it because it was just the way the whole thing worked out.
You should make more money, especially if you’re making a lot of money right now. It’s okay. We’re going to make less money from now on because we’re going to start paying ourselves more. We’re going to pay ourselves more because we need to build our emergency fund.
That’s all great. But if you don’t make more money, it’s still okay. That’s what it’s about. You need a little amount of extra money. The best thing you can do is take on more work. Whatever you’re doing, if you can get more of it, take it on. Take more work from that make more money for yourself.
You don’t have to worry about the money as you are in a good place right now. and in future you are going to be in a better place. The more work you get, the more money you’re going to make. But it would be best if you did some extra work, and it’s going to cost you some money.
Doing Extra Work:
When it comes to the extra work, I think it’s about building freelance projects that you’re proud of. Those are the projects that you can’t let go. You’re not going to be working on freelance projects that you’re just working out a little by little. You want to be working on freelance projects that you love.
When I started freelancing again in a few months, I’m going to be proud of it, and I’m proud of how much money I made from it. I’m going to be proud of how I made those jobs go to my emergency fund.
Some great places pay well. Freelance search engines will always pay you a little bit more because it’s a competitive marketplace. There are places like Upwork. There are all these freelance websites. They pay you more, and you’re going to be glad that you paid yourself a little bit more.
