All freelancers are not alike. There is a myriad of things that differentiate freelancers, from personality type to our industry of choice, and even the way that we work. However, when you solely work from home, there are common challenges that affect us all.
Some people say that being a mom is the hardest job life throws at you. Then again, others say running your own business is one of life’s toughest tasks. So what happens when you throw the two together? Those of us that juggle both likely have the hardest job of all.
Part of what makes a successful business is you. You may feel that if you were to step away from it for a day or two, everything would fall apart. But when you’re running a business and are always giving 100%, you probably don’t have the right balance. Here’s what you can do to improve it.
Work-life balance is important. However, when you decide to work for yourself, you might be under the impression that you won’t be working long hours, that your stress levels will decrease and that you will have more time to spend with your nearest and dearest. But in the beginning that definitely won’t be the case. And it’s quite likely that initially, you’ll find yourself tired, feeling a little defeated and at risk of burnout.
Congratulations! You’ve decided that you’re ready to take the leap into entrepreneurship. Becoming an entrepreneur isn’t easy and you want to be taken seriously right from the start. We’re not talking about silly tactics like faking a deep voice like Elizabeth Holmes and many other women do. We’re going to share a few tried and true steps to help you put your best foot forward.
