Quitting your day job to pursue a freelance career is a big decision. But how do you know when the time is right? There are a few factors to consider before taking the plunge. For starters, ask yourself if you're genuinely passionate about your work. If you're not excited about getting up and going to your job each day, it might be time for a change. Think about your long-term goals, too. If you see yourself eventually working for yourself, then freelancing might be the path for you. But if you prefer the stability of a traditional job, it's probably best to stick with what you know. Finally, consider your finances. Quitting your job without another source of income is not a smart move. With COVID-19 behind us, it's a perfect time to reassess your freelance marketplace strategy and see if there are better options out there for getting clients. This pandemic has touched the work from home movement, which means that people want digital transformations faster than ever before! That should mean good news not only in terms of revenue but also opportunities as well since automation continues moving forward at an incredible pace — making them even more valuable now too. If you're looking for clients, where do you even begin? There are so many places to look nowadays. Online? At events? Cold calling? It can be tough to decide where to find clients. Do you scour the internet? Go to industry events? Start making cold calls? There are a lot of options for finding clients, but it can be tricky to know where to start. Sometimes the best place to look is right in your own backyard. We will go over actional steps, resources and guides on how to not just match your current income but exceed it by working for yourself.
