In 2013, my introvert dreams were answered.

I had made the heady decision on New Years Day to book plane tickets to Japan, signalling my no-way-backing-out-now decision to leave my safety bubble that was my 9-5 job as a web designer in London.

It also signalled the start of my 6-month experiment: be a Freelancer.

Spoiler alert: the experiment went well and I am still working for myself.

But… it was not an easy 6 months. In fact, the years following weren’t exactly a walk in the empty-introvert-friendly-park either.

Like this report shows, many freelancers feel less secure financially - and the pay brackets show this - than being full-time.

Despite the fact that going solo, either freelancing or setting up your own biz, may be the dream for many introverts who can’t abide the office life: it does come with it’s own challenges.

That’s what I want to spend this episode tackling.

Now I touched on one of the biggest sticking points in episode 031 - The Troubleshooting Guide for the Demotivated - which is, you guessed it, dealing with the issue of motivation when you work for yourself.

And naturally, I recommend that particularly if you’ve been freelancing or WFY for some time.

But today is more like a… primer. May be for those who are considering cutting loose from the 9-5 and fancy themselves as a one-man (or woman) band.

 

You’ll hear me talk about…

  • The two biggest questions to ask yourself before going freelance
  • Why I backed away from web design
  • How to schedule your day for success
  • The strategy I use to make sure I focus
  • Why freelancing isn't as introvert-friendly as you might think
  • How to prevent burnout
  • And much more
