“As a freelancer, my biggest advantage is only needing a handful of clients to succeed” (My Freelance Life 020)

Andy is quite happy not to take on new clients at the moment. He doesn’t need to work 24/7 and only requires a handful of clients to match his target income.

In today’s episode, Andy talks about the flexibility of choosing clients and fluctuating his own rates, calling it his ‘biggest advantage’ working as a full-time freelancer.

In the second part of the show, Andy gives his thoughts on whether you should accept a lower paying gig if business is ‘slow’.

If the opportunity seems right, go for it and take that low-paying job. But when money comes on to the table, make sure you’re getting what you’re worth”, says Andy.

We also talk about looking for ways that can help freelancers build up processes in their business. As your freelance career grows, you may look to virtual assistants or sub-contractors to take tasks off your plate and leave you free for higher-value work.

This and much more in today’s episode of My Freelance Life.
