Being a freelancers sounds very cool and exciting since you do not need to deal with troublesome bosses and annoying supervisors who keep changing their minds and require you to modify your design again and again. Most importantly, you do not have to spend time on the way to the company or follow strict 8/5 routine. In a word, you are the manager of yourself. That is why I choose the course Freelance Bootcamp
Thanks James Clear (2012) for so many useful suggestions for how to introduce yourself, develop business network, find ideal clients, negotiate with clients, deal with legal issues, and succeed in your own business. I did gain lots of information from the videos. However, now I find that freelancer means not only being free but also restricted. Although most viewers can understand every word of Clear, few of them can really be successful as a freelancer due to the limitations in the actual resources. For example, a young man from poor background who has few working experience can hardly get a quality business network and good clients. It is not easy to manage everything by yourself. Hence, it is a bit risky to become a freelancer.
It is just my opinion. I think I am now still not powerful enough to be a freelancer. Now I very admire the freelancers because they are so brave and determinate. Maybe I would try to be a freelancer in the future, after I had enough resources and became experienced.
