    If you're interested in freelancing, it is best to approach a subject in depth. For example, if it's gardening that interests you, consider reading about plants that grow well in climates where you live AND common pests and diseases these plants face AND how to identify insects and fungi attacking them AND seasonal variations in when they can be planted. This will cover a much wider range of the scientific knowledge base out there for this topic than if you just did one browse of online articles.

    In a freelancing economy the world is your marketplace. That means if you live in Washington D.C., you can make money from anywhere as long as there's a broadband connection and an internet ready device to do the work with. And of course, it starts with building a list of customers who need your services on one end and filling their needs on the other. Now, freelancers work in all sorts of industries--tech, consulting, accounting, beauty treatments--so I'm going to focus specifically on freelance writers. The first thing any writer has to figure out is what type of writing they want to do: Do they want to write for magazines? Blogs? Books? Businesses?

    Steer clear of the scammy ones, focus on quality work, provide excellent service to give people confidence in your abilities. There are many ways to approach freelancing, but it's important to be careful when choosing which clients you want to take on. When it comes to finding jobs or soliciting quotes for freelance work online there are some companies/sites that are known for being scams. They will ask for payment before they have completed your project and then they just disappear with your money. Remember that this problem is not unique to freelancing - even large corporations have been known at times for pulling this type of shady behavior - so keep an eye out! Do both research into good companies AND always get paid upfront!

    Well, that depends on whether or not you're an introvert or an extrovert. If you're more of a loner and enjoy long stretches of solitude with a good book, then freelancing might be a perfect fit for you. If talking to people to sell yourself is your thing, then freelancing just might not be for you. Introverts often do well in freelance positions because they get paid to work alone while others are doing the selling. Introverts know how to create timelines and stay on task without someone looking over their shoulder - two skills all professionals should know.

    This is a complicated topic that deserves it's own quiz to answer. It's best not to wait till you're unemployed. Reach out when you have time when the industry might need it most, when you hear news about something coming up or in-demand freelancers looking for people in your niche. Asking allows room for bidding lowering and doesn't pressure the company to hire. If they do not want right now, find another opportunity elsewhere because followup can mean additional income after either an interview or an offer.
