30 days to become a Freelancer

You’ve decided to take the plunge and start a freelance business. Congratulations are in order, but perhaps you’re afraid.

Even though you know owning your own business is a great opportunity, there is risk and uncertainty.

What if you can’t find clients?

How do you describe what you do?

There are so many choices, where do you start?

Uncertainty lurks

Uncertainty is the source of the fear. While you work for someone else you can always defer decisions to your boss. They’re on the line for the mistake.

But with your own business, the buck literally stops with you. Your choices. Your decisions. Your consequences.

Business is not as well defined and rule-based

Freelancing and business aren’t about sets of rules. If this occurs, then this happens. Cause. Effect.

No.

Business is about people. People who are not logical. People who are not rational.

How do you make decisions when faced with that? How do you make the right decisions?

Follow A Path

There is no one true path to starting a freelance business. No direct route from point A to point B.

But there are several paths that have proven to work. Well worn paths. Paths with guideposts to lead you to your next destination.

All you need to do is to find one path that works for you. And follow it, of course.

Because this is your business. Your career. This is something you’ve created, something you control.

Control leads to Freedom.

Once you get started on your path, you’ll see what freedoms come with it.

Freedom to work when you want. 10 in the morning, 10 at night. Four days a week or seven days a week. It’s your choice.

Freedom to work where you want. At home. At a coffee shop. In an RV on the beach (yes, I know someone who does just that).

And perhaps most importantly of them all, the freedom to work on projects you care about. With teams you care about.

Before you can reach that point, you need to do the one thing that every freelancer has had to do.

Start your business now.

And starting is hard. By coming here you’ve already taken the first step. You know that with help you can start your freelance business easier and with less pain.

It’s up to you to find that help. Whether you find it from here or someplace else, find it. Walk the well-worn paths that have proven to work.

How can you get help?

From my experience working with dozen of freelancers, I’ve created a guide to your first 30 days as a freelancer. Think of it as a roadmap and guidebook to the path I’ve found.

A path… but with choices

It will guide you in planning how to setup your business. What services to provide, what clients to look for, even how you want to structure your workday.

It’s a sequential plan but it’s also customizable for you. You’re your own unique person with strengths, weaknesses, and desires. Instead of marching you down a strict pathway, flexibility is built into the guidebook in the form of exercises.

Exercises to find your uniqueness. Exercises to guide your decisions. Exercises to help you reach the end and get started.

You’ll need this customization in your plan. Don’t waste time going down the wrong path.
