To become a successful freelancer, a person has to work on his/her owns skills and on doing so can generate an active income. Many freelancers started their earnings by generating an active income, this might be considered as a success to many but it isn’t so when there is a huge pressure on your everyday life that also comes from time constraints. Although a freelancer have more time flexibility than corporate workers as their schedule is not fixed by the agency/ company they are working at, they however have to work around the year having little to no time for holidays and vacations especially when they undertake many projects. Seasonal freelancers like wedding planners, etc. might have some free time on their hands but free time also mean zero income which mean that the monetary value of their skills depended on the season in which there is a high demand for their work.
Now, there is a way out of this. As you know many freelancers face difficulty with their start-ups. They don’t have anywhere or anyone to turn to. In other words, they lack the opportunity to have a proper start in their freelancing career. In order to have a good start a freelancer need to meet clients and then go on to gain their trusts. How will you meet such clients if you are an introvert like and your skill is selling your designs from home? There are websites that you can sign up and you can interact with clients and carry out the business transaction. This is the first step towards being a successful freelancer. The second is to gain your clients trust by holding your end of the deal and by being good at what you do. This can help you attract more clients and consequently gaining more income. Real success, however, is when a freelancer has managed to change his income from active to passive. Now how does one earn passive income as a freelancer? By selling your product, but not just any other product but products that can generate income for a longer period. Few examples can be online classes, a design, a program or an ebook. If you can reach this final step then your life is made easier as you just watch your money roll in while you can do some other work at the same time or no work at all.
