    1. Be prepared to work long hours on your own for a time as you initially establish yourself and learn more about the business. 2. It's important to have some sort of competitive advantage over others, this could be where you live, what specialty area you're looking into, and so forth. 3. Be prepared to invest in yourself on various levels, don't just focus on the dollar price tag of something that will help advance your career but also think about how much time it'll take away from other tasks like negotiating with clients or scoping new assignments. 4.

    There are so many things to take into consideration when it comes to this question, but the most important thing is finding what work you're passionate about and focus on getting really good at that. A lot of people just jump in thinking "I want to be a freelancer" without really knowing what they want or need. They then find themselves doing tons of different jobs that don't matter from an emotional sense for long periods on end until they eventually drop out because their expectations weren't met. A lot of the time, taking your time and figuring out how best it will suit your business can save a ton of frustration and unhappiness in the end.

    Freelancers are sometimes seen as having more freedoms to pursue different opportunities. But, freelancing also comes with certain costs and risks not afforded other traditional employees. Freelancers must be able to manage their own business effectively in order to succeed financially. The most successful freelancers tend to be experts who can charge high prices because of their expertise, but there is no "standard" cost per hour that defines success for all freelancers. A competitive market will ensure that rates adjust accordingly depending on the skills required for any given job, so it's important for each individual freelancer to do their homework before starting an engagement between two parties or coming up with a quote based on hourly rates alone.

    Personally, I believe that you need the following qualities to be a successful freelancer:. -Do your research and know who your audience is. Get an idea of their age range, sex, what they like and why. Brainstorm ideas and content for them to enjoy and draw from these inspirations when coming up with the topic or angle for your article. This will make it easier to strike a chord with them as it will be relatable in some way. -Create an original style that doesn't require reliance on what others are doing to get noticed.

    There are a lot of things that go into being a successful freelancer. I'll just focus in on a few in this answer though. A successful freelancer will have an excellent portfolio to submit with their work and take the time to do so well. They should always be willing to learn from others by getting feedback from them, watching tutorials, reading articles from thought leaders who share wisdom, etc. Typically they will also stay up-to-date with whatever is happening in their field or industry which sometimes requires following blogs or other sources for news and publications.

    1) An understanding of other people's time. "Time is money" rings true for freelancers, especially since they are the ones billing by the hour. If you overspend your hourly quota because you kept accepting really minor tasks which led to longer hours, it might be difficult to recoup that investment. As Warren Buffet said, "time is the friend of an investor." It's better to be diplomatic about how long you think something should take and then offer revisions if necessary instead of spending all your allotted time on a task only to realize later that it wasn't worth it at all because someone else could have done it more efficiently than yourself.
