Being a freelancer is hard work. Not only do you have to do the jobs you get hired to do, you have to be willing to go out and find the jobs in the first place. I have been relying on one maybe two sources for work and that is just not cutting it.
My goal for today is to write five bids for new work via Elancer, a website that hooks up freelancers with employers. I also intend to find a few more publications to pitch myself too.
This is the hard part of the job for me because I hate rejection; it is probably my biggest fear. But as the saying goes you can’t win if you don’t play. While this is bad advice for the lottery it is great advice for the job market.
