But people who truly have what it takes to be a freelance professional have to be equipped with so much more than a dream. What is a dream without action anyway? Let’s talk about the true meaning of “freelance professional”.
A Person Immune to Failure
Okay, it’s actually more than that. Everyone will experience some sort of failure in their lives, personally and professionally. But a person who has what it takes as a freelance professional cannot be deterred by one failure or ten. A person who can live the life of a freelance professional must take every “failure” and look at it as a lesson to do better or take a different route the next time around. Failure does not equal giving up.
A Person Who Knows They Are an Outsider
For those who don’t know what it means to be a freelance professional, there is this idea that it means working from home in pajamas all day. And some days that may be true. But the life of a freelance professional can be brutally hard at times and the majority of people have no idea what kind of tenacity that lifestyle requires. Being a freelance professional means being a person who can accept that they are living outside the box. And then embracing that fully.
