I guess i still have to learn and to do until i reach my final success target, but i can also say that my current standings as full time freelancer is pretty solid and i am happy as it is now.
However, after i posted discussion Seoclerks Thanks For Great Vacation, many members wanted to her more, how i get my success. I have to say that my journey to current success was very long and very rough, specially at beginning and it would be too long to write about all of it, but here i will write few general tips which will help you to clear your mind and doubts about freelancing.
First! Freelancing can be nice side job for extra income, but don't ever take it as a game! It can be great source of income if yu take it seriously!
If you want to earn more then few bucks, then invest your time and even invest your money, but be careful where and how much to invest!
If you going for full time freelancing, then run your job seriously as if you would run real business! Don't you think it's just fun. Determine your self to it completely.
Set your targets with clear picture what you want to gain, and go for it, no matter what happen.
Don't think it's always easy. If you fail, learn from your mistakes as quickly as possible, but don't let hard times to make you quit. All of us had ups and downs.
Always learn from successful people, no matter how good you are!
Always have something what motivates and inspire you to cheer you up and give you strength to go further.
Don't fear of failure!!! Risk is large part of any business and you never know what can hit you hard tomorrow.
Get the losers out of you life, they only slow you down.
Be surrounded by people with positive attitude who encourage and support you.
Don't sell crap and expect success and pride! Don't scam people if you building your success, because even if you succeed for some time, it will for sure wipe you OFF in future.
Respect others to be respected! Kindness always win.
surely there is a lot more, but this is basic things that are important for any business and freelancing too. So if you freelance just for fun, then these not matter anyway, but i hope that most of Seoclerks sellers are (and should be) serious about freelancing...
