I want other struggling freelancers to know that you aren’t alone, even if the online world says otherwise. I see you, and I see your struggles. The solution is all about making a choice. So what will you choose? Misery or positivity?
Freelancer burnout is inevitable even if you do everything correctly and take all of the advice that you can. But why? Here’s my take on it.
Engaging with writing and learning how to constantly improve the clarity and engagement of that writing has helped me overcome many barriers in how I communicate with people. My story is not unique. Many find strength in writing that they lack elsewhere.
If you leave yourself open to improving your writing, even in places you might not have thought of at first, you’ll be a real writer, a professional writer. And that’s what this is all about.
My panic lists help me organize the smaller things, remember the larger ones, and accommodate the really large ones. It helps me keep on top of everything to do with my business so that nothing slips through the cracks.
The important thing is to always focus on doing what you need to do for your professional career. Sticker shock is just part of the process of doing what’s best for you.
It might sound strange, but charging a fair but decent freelancer rate will impress many new and existing clients. It shows that you take your skills and job seriously and know your worth.
There seems to be a misperception somewhere that you aren’t allowed to change your mind regarding your freelancing rates. I’m here to tell you that this is a total myth! Not only do freelancing rates change, but they should also change.
I’m not saying that life as a professional content writer is full of frustrations, but…it kind of is! These little things always have a way of getting under your skin.
When hunting for a way to help you offer something special for readers, it’s all about sticking with the simple things and appreciating just what they would appreciate.
