“I’m fortunate enough to hand-pick projects I work on” (My Freelance Life 015)


Part of the attraction of switching to full-time freelance is the ability to hand-pick what to work on and to have multiple project possibilities – compared to working for just one company.

This week, Andy runs us through his routine after coming back from Europe, talks about the impact of vacations on his freelance projects – and the effect it had on his earnings.

In this episode, we also talk about:

  • Dealing with a vacation ‘hangover’ and getting back into the groove
  • The importance of personal accountability for freelancers
  • What’s more valuable? Having a client who calls you all the time and pays half the rate versus having a client who calls you once a year who pays double the rate. You’ll have to find a balance.
  • The realities of working remotely as a freelancer

As always we would love to hear your thoughts!
