The business of ‘freelance’ is exploding right now. Everywhere you turn there are sites and online platforms exclusively for freelancers. In other words, this is the perfect time to become a freelancer.
Whether your gifts lie in programming or design, marketing or writing, HR or copywriting, you can definitely make a career out of it in the field of freelance. All it takes is a bit of knowledge, a strong will to learn new things, lots of patience, and lots of hard work. As with most jobs, in freelancing you have to make a name for yourself by excelling at what you do, and that takes time and commitment.
We all have the potential for greatness. To develop and express our greatness, we must possess the passion and drive to live our lives with calculated risks and an attitude of faith. When we strive for greatness, when we strive to give all we’ve got to achieving our dreams, “success” is the secondary benefit.
Greatness lies in the journey, not the result. If success is our only drive, we may achieve financial wealth, but we may not achieve greatness. Greatness is much deeper than money. Greatness is an expression of our character.
When we think about earning money on the side, one of the first barriers that pop into our head is: How do I pick an idea?
Right off the bat we overwhelm ourselves by thinking about how we need to come up with the next billion-dollar tech idea like Facebook.
But I want to help you think about your idea in a different way. This is something that those who’ve successfully built a profitable business have in common: They were good at something that helped solve someone else’s problem.
We live in a society that is based on information and where knowledge equals strength. Thus, if you want to be rich and successful, you need to excel in something so that you can stand out among other people that are doing the same thing as you. To get to the top, you must continuously learn and gain new knowledge that will come in useful.
The multitude of information that is available on the Internet makes it very easy for you to learn just about anything. The proliferation of the Internet over recent years has made information distribution happen in a much more rapid pace. That is why continuous learning is necessary if you want to stay ahead of the curve and well-informed in your area of expertise. If you neglect to keep up with the latest industry trends, you might find yourself backdated and unable to make the best decisions.
