Let me guess.
You cannot stop thinking.
Cannot stop thinking of how amazing it would be to live a highly successful freelancer’s lifestyle.
Well, as you may have guessed, you are alone no more!
Today I am here for you! I want to give you only one piece of advice. Yes, only one, yet a highly valuable piece of advice.
Today I am not here to teach you anything from a book, nor am I interested in giving you a speech about life.
Today I want YOU to take action. I want to see you get real results.
And because of that reason I am ready to start whenever you are.
Numerous times I have heard crazy advice. Especially advice for those who want to become a freelancer.
People keep saying that the most important skill to become a freelancer is…being a great business person.
Then followed by something like…you have to be good at keeping good relationship with clients.
Yes, it all sounds just fantastic and it definitely is essential if you want to be a highly successful freelancer.
But there is something that comes before that. Something that I would not call an essential skill to have.
“Can anything be so elegant as to have few wants, and to serve them one’s self?” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Instead I would bravely name it: “The Ultimate Skill To Have In Order To Become a Highly Successful Freelancer.”
Without this skill you will not even be able to get yourself started. You will not get any further than having a wish.
Having a wish that goes something like: “I want to become a freelancer, so I can work only when I feel so.”
Avoid upsetting yourself and find out the truth.
