Another great lesson I’ve learned as a freelancer is to not be afraid to put yourself out there. When I started this journey, it was scary and unknown. That is part of what made it all the more exciting! Looking back on what I have been able to accomplish in a relatively short period of time, I am even more excited to see where I can go.
I encourage all freelancers to put themselves out there. It can be pitching to clients, working on your website, or just building your brand even more. These are all parts of the whole picture. It’s not just about one thing over the other. It is about the package that you deliver to your current and prospective clients. When I look at what I can do on a daily basis, I get a smile on my face and it drives me to be even better. It also drives me to work harder at putting myself out to the masses. You never know what that one email or Twitter message could do for you.
To finish this up, I want to encourage you all to put yourselves out there every day. You are the rep for your brand, for your business. So go out there and make it happen!
