A Sneak Peek at the Episode
[0:10] Nick and Kate dive right into the task at hand and give some examples of negative comments you might hear from those around you about freelance that simply are not true. Remember, freelancing is more than just possible; as long as you know the correct steps to take!
[3:07] Kate introduces the concept of feast or famine, which the hosts acknowledge is a scary concept. But, they explain why it’s only a reality if you let it become one by hoping work will come to you without a gameplan.
[4:54] Nicki reminds us that a huge benefit of freelance is that YOU are in control of your career. This means that you are in control of the amount of work you land by consistently following a plan to go out and find clients.
[7:50] Nicki and Kate discuss what you need to learn in order to be a successful freelancer. Freelancing is 100% possible–but like everything else in life you need to learn how to do it…before you can actually do it. It’s important to keep in mind that just because you can’t do something yet, doesn’t mean you can’t do it.
[12:23] Nicki and Kate explain that in terms of risk an on-staff job is actually more risky for you than freelancing is. While this may be shocking to hear, it’s true! An on-staff position is frankly, not in your control. There could be a change any day that would affect your job security. But, if you learn how to freelance, you always have the security of knowing you can control your own income.
[14:10] Nicki points out that comfort is often confused with control. Oftentimes, people cannot see the lack of control they have in their career because they’re so used to it. With freelance, you can actually have control over your career and comfort in the fact that you are doing what you love!
[18:41] Our hosts give a preview of what’s to come in the rest of the limited series! Be sure to follow along and listen to each episode so you don’t miss out on important information that will propel your freelance career!
