Why Reinvent the Wheel?
Every career has its occupational pitfalls – and freelancing is no exception. This career path is especially fraught with opportunities for missteps. After all, we are out there completely on our own – walking a tightrope without a safety net.
The challenges we face range from typical newbie mistakes, to getting stuck in ruts, to being strict bosses of ourselves. The best way to circumvent these problems, and at the same time avoid wasting time reinventing the wheel, is to learn about the most common pitfalls in the freelance life and plan to avoid them. As they say, forewarned is forearmed.
During my freelance career, I’ve made my share of mistakes, primarily because no one warned me and prepared me for the dangers ahead. Now, as a veteran freelancer writer, I am pretty much fully able to tackle anything this crazy-wonderful career can throw at me.
On my blog and in my Freelance Writing Secrets Revealed eCourse, I’ll share insights into the mistakes I’ve made during my long freelance career and what I learned from them – so, hopefully, you don’t have to make them too.
