Never Forget That Becoming a Freelancer Is Starting a Business
If I had to name only one piece of advice, it would be, “Your technical skills are a small percentage of what it takes to be a successful freelancer.” In my case, I was providing web development services, but it’s just as applicable for content writing, digital marketing, design, accounting - you name it. Not only did I jump into freelancing too early, but I had limited exposure to everything else it takes to be a successful career freelancer. Full-time freelance or consulting is simply running a business. It doesn’t matter whether you open a booth selling lemonade or you’re selling websites.
