Advice on Freelance Business

Recognize that you can’t do it all yourself and you shouldn’t do it all yourself but knowing how to outsource and how to do that. You should be strategic about what you pull off your plate.

Tip about pitching: Make sure to do the research of their business. A little bit of personalization goes a long way.

You don’t need a website

You don’t need a website to really start out but you should have a presence. Build your Linkedin profile instead to show who you are and what you do. Start building client testimonials.
