This week has been a slow week for me in the freelancing world. The holidays are finally over but the result is the same. I’m starting a new VA job soon. I am hoping to get some new pitches out but it’s been a long and slow week.
The best and worst thing about being a freelancer is the slow times. It’s nice to have some breathing room but let’s be honest, a slow time means less in the wallet. I guess it can be seen as a happy medium. Once the new year really picks up, I think it will see me doing great things with my career.
As I look forward to this month, I am excited for what’s coming and also for what has not been given yet. I will be taking the full range of this time. As I start pitching in the new year, I know I will get more jobs because as I have said many times, there are many jobs out there. I plan to take 2016 by the horns after this week is over.
How to Rev Up a Slow Week
- Have a list of prospects to pitch to
- Network with your contacts
- Brainstorm some ideas
- Write, write, write
- Work with new and existing clients
Well, that about does it for this week. What are you all working on this week? Is is slow for my other freelancers out there? Let me know in the comments!
