I love a new year. It’s all about clean slates and possibilities. Anything could happen. This could be the year everything changes and gets a million percent better. It could be the year everything clicks. It could be the first day of the rest of your life. I truly believe that it’s possible to just get better and better every year. . . even if it’s just in teeny tiny increments.
As I look back on my years of freelancing, I’m super proud of what I’ve done and how far I’ve come. I’ve also noticed some patterns and missteps I wished I had avoided. There have been times I could have made some really big moves. . . if only I would have had the foresight to get the hell out of my own way.
You don’t want to limit yourself as a business owner. You got into the freelance world because you like to play by your own rules and don’t want to conform to anyone else’s standards. It’s part of your passion to make your own way.
