5 freelance myths that keep you broke

There’s so much BAD advice out there when it comes to freelancing. It’s no wonder people keep falling victim to these stupid myths like, “Freelancing is a numbers game”. No the hell it’s not. Not if you don’t wanna be miserable.

Or, “anyone can freelance”.

Meh.

Maybe, that’s “technically” true because freelancing is a skill that just needs learned. But, that’s like saying “basketball is just a skill” so “anyone can be a pro”.

Yeah no.

Some people are just better suited to freelancing. And, it comes down to what you value most. If you don’t value certain things MOST, freelancing will always be an uphill battle for you. You’d be better off doing something else.

Wouldn’t you like to know that before you waste a bunch of time freelancing when it’s just not in your DNA?

But I digress…

Look, if you really, truly want to be a freelancer, you need to know… it’s getting more and more competitive. I’ve been doing this for 15 years and it’s never been this bad.

Yet…

There’s also more work out there than ever before. The trick is becoming one of those 1% of freelancers that suck up all the work and make all the money.

You see them everywhere.

Upwork. Freelancer.

#1 on Google.

It doesn’t seem fair.

That’s because it isn’t. But, if you want to earn your way into that exclusive group, you flat out CANNOT keep falling victim to the common myths and misconceptions that keep most freelancers broke.

It’s like trying to swim in a pool of piranhas with both hands tied behind your back.

In any case, I made a video where I obliterate five of the most common freelancing myths that keep people broke. Any ONE of these could be what’s holding you back right now.

But, fair warning.

This video is LONG.

And, I’m not gonna jump through hoops and juggle butcher knives to keep you entertained. So, if you need that to pay attention, this ain’t for you.

And, freelancing isn’t either.

Anyway, the video is here: https://freelancemyths.com/

There’s no email sign-up or anything like that.

Later,
