Diversify Your Job Knowledge.
Job knowledge or experience plays a major role in freelancing. If you are well experienced, you could complete the assigned job in half-a-time. The idea is select jobs which are more comfortable to you and where you have the in depth knowledge. At the same time, find where is the demand (which job has more demand) and diversify your knowledge towards it.

Less Focus Towards Money Making.
As a freelancer, your ultimate aim will be money making but don’t focus too much towards money. Instead, focus towards:
- How to perfectly complete the assigned jobs ?
- How to increase your productivity ?
- How to manage your time effectively ?
- How to change your profile into better ?
- Spend time to learn new stuffs.
This way, you are building yourself towards growth and automatically, you will be making more money. So don’t work only for money (it may bring in stress too), you may not get satisfied with your jobs.
Have Reasonable Goals.
When you are working to achieve something, you should need goals first. Are you clear with your goals ? If not, list down your goals and make a plan on how you want to achieve it ? More important, you should have reasonable/achievable goals. Over expectation kills your productivity. So keep reasonable goals which are at least easy to achieve.
- For example, “i will complete 2 jobs per week” is a nice goal say, you could complete by spending 10 hours per week. This way, you will be clear on what you need and how you are going to achieve your needs ? Thats the secret of successful freelancers.
- Try to spend quality time and pay attention to grow your work knowledge.
- Don’t think too much about your income instead, focus towards how you are going to improve your freelance career.
- Setup goals which are easy to achieve.
Over a period of time (based on your goals/productivity), you will get increased monthly income which happens naturally !
