FREELANCE, A BUSINESS WITH PASSION
Teenage brings passion, the age everyone starts dreaming and struggling to make those dreams a reality. In the 21st century, money is the ultimate requirement to achieve all those dreams, one of the necessities to get all the other necessities of life. Coming up with thousands of ideas to earn money, freelancing is one of the most highlighted opportunities.
Freelance is not only for teenagers, but it also involves housewives looking for a work at the home platform, for the employers not satisfied with their amount of living, those interested to improve their skills, and for those who just need a platform to speak their hearts out. Freelancing has become a huge industry with millions of opportunities around the globe. And in this case, you choose your boss, you chose the projects you want to work on independently.
Opportunities for Freelancers:-
Freelancers work for themselves; they are their boss; they have their timings and own choices but still good money. It’s a though a practical replacement from those typical 9–5 jobs, a platform, where they’re paid for their skills and they get a chance to improve themselves.
It is a huge industry with hundreds of options, thousands of choices, and millions of doors opening into a better lifestyle. Starting from writing articles, blogs, descriptions, academic writings, and landing into a never-ending world of choices. Just discover your passion, decide the job, choose the working hours, and achieve it.
But the main thing, the effort, the attention, success never comes from the comfort zones. If it does, every other person would be that successful and lucky enough to shine. It all lies in motivation, attention, effort, and patience. Staying focused enough to accept the failures as a beginner, patient enough to work hard, and fascinated enough to continue the efforts. These are all the major requirements to get your job proposal accepted in this career.
All those efforts give rise to your bank balance, all that attention brings you experience and that motivation brings you success. Surely these rules if properly followed bring a massive change in lifestyle. There are thousands of freelancers doing this as a full-time job making a good living out of it.
But not everyone can take that pressure, that responsibility, sense of responsibility is another major pillar for this building to stand if you’re not responsible enough to complete the work in time, you’re going to lose your clients and that’s a major loss of motivation. Progressing slowly is much better than no progress at all.
Fantasizing things is easy, getting out of bed and working for it is hard and those who control their nerves enough to get over this, welcome a bright future for sure. Being passionate about what you’re working on is another important point to be concerned about. Never burden your mind on something it’s not accepting, this will result in a lack of interest for work. Dollars mean nothing if you’re not mentally healthy, the lighter you treat your mind, the better it will work.
Like every other job, freelance also needs time to develop, needs your attention to improve your skills. You’ve to work hard in the beginning, you may have to give more time to your work, you may have to manage your budgets according to the clients, you may have to do revisions again and again until the client gets satisfied, try to be ok with that, try to accept that all with a smile. That’s not a choice, that’s the requirement of your job.
With the advancement of social media, the freelance industry is also observed to be growing. According to a report from Upwork (A well-known platform for freelancers), 75% of jobs in the Art and Entertainment Industry in 2019 were freelanced, and this industry made up to 5% GDP last year that is more than construction and transport industries in the US.
More than 57M (35%) people in the US were reported to be Freelancers. That’s a huge number. But don’t be fantasized by their lives. They were all beginners at some points. They all, that are now the big names in this industry, they’ve all been through all those struggles, some of them were to make their living, some to change their lifestyles, but nobody got the success without struggles. Everyone suffers first, then achieves. A person who can’t suffer, can’t bring change in his life. For being the best, you all need to give the best.
There are a few platforms that are working for connecting the companies to Freelancers. These websites introduce clients to content creators around the globe. Upwork, Fiverr, People Per hour are some big names in Freelance. Other than these there are many other ways, writing eBooks, ghost writings, working with content agencies, or even starting your own blog. They all can make you a good living, but, just a little attention. Get serious about this and it will start taking you seriously.
But everything has a dark side too. In Freelance, Scammers prove to be the dark side. Scammers may be of different types, maybe the clients, maybe the freelancers. The most common type of Scammers never responds at the time of payment after getting their work done. Some of these ask for investments before work assuring that they will double the amount of money and return, but that returning time never arrives. You need to tackle those carefully!
So that was it for freelancing, I hope you enjoyed it and get to know about it in a more precise way.
