Have a vision and bring it to life

Working as a self employed from home has its ups and downs but I won’t trade my life for anything. I remember how unfulfilled I felt in my last traditional job. The job wasn’t what I wanted to do and I felt my skills were being wasted.

Being my own boss allows me make the most of my skills and create my own destiny, and I love it. Many people ask me how I have managed to earn a living working from home and the simple answer is I created jobs I could do using my skills. I had a vision in my mind of how I wanted my life to be and I went with it.

Have a vision and bring it to life

Being able to create a vision and bring it to real life is the power of manifestation coupled with lots of hard work. I won’t be able to do what I do if I didn’t first create it in mind. I believed in my vision and it came to life. Also, I worked hard to be in the position I am in now and I have to continue to work as hard as I can to continue to grow in my hustle.

Working for myself is one of the hardest things I have ever done. There’s no one to blame if things go wrong. It’s me, myself and I in here, and it feels scary and fun at the same time. However, I am all here for all the different emotions. I cherish my journey and I won’t ever give up on it. Being able to work for myself has allowed me become the best version of myself and I love this version of me.

I would love to encourage anyone thing or starting a side gig or business, and wondering whether to go ahead with it or not. My advice is to go ahead with all the way and see how you get on. If you succeed yay and if you don’t at least you now know what not to do. No experience is ever wasted so just do it. You never know how successfully it may go and if it doesn’t work, you can try something else and ticked that off.

What vision do you need to bring to life? Have you started working on it? Do tell in the comments section below. Let’s chat.

Thanks for stopping by.

3 Ways to Transition to Freelance Successfully

Is leaving your job and going into freelancing full-time one of your goals for the year? As someone who transitioned from a 9-to-5 to freelancing, I know the questions you might have in mind. Questions like: “Am I making the right choice?” “Will I be able to make enough money in my first month to pay the bills and still get myself nice things?” “Will I be able to find clients or will anyone want to hire me?”

Leaving your stable job to go all in to a business where you cannot guarantee right away the level of income you’ll make is a terrifying step to take. However, with a clear plan that will help you ease into your dream life as a freelancer, you can safely transition to freelancing.

All it takes is to honestly answer these three questions. The answers you give will determine if you’re ready to jump into freelancing or if you need a bit more preparation before you dive into it full-time.

Question #1: On a scale of 1 to 10 how ready are you emotionally to dive into freelancing?

I agree that wanting to make the transition to being a full-time freelancer is nerve-wracking. But if you have a conviction that you will succeed and if you trust yourself that you have what it takes to thrive in the freelance industry, then there’s no stopping you.

Most of the times, people allow the fear of the unknown to paralyze their effort to actually make something big out of themselves. This kind of negative thinking is not a healthy sign of someone who is ready to create a career in freelancing.

It’s okay to be nervous or scared but so long as you believe in yourself and are determined to do what it takes to give value and grow as a freelancer, then you’re on the right track.

 

Question #2: On a scale of 1 to 10 how ready are you professionally and personally for freelancing?

Unlike working in a 9-to-5 where you’re accountable to your employer, as a freelancer, you are your own boss. Being the boss comes with a lot of responsibilities and you need to train yourself to handle such responsibilities.

Professionally, freelancing is a huge shift from the conventional. The freelancer lifestyle is very different from what you’re used to. It involves you spending most of your time at home and alone.

You have to be sure that you’ll be able to handle the changes that come with being a freelancer. Are you really ready for these changes and do you have a plan B just in case things don’t turn out according to plan? Or do you still need more time to accept the change?

Question #3: On a scale of 1 to 10 how ready are you commercially to be a freelancer?

You need to be aware of the risks involved with doing freelancing full-time. Are you financially ready to dive into the freelance career? Do you have enough money to live on pending when you are able to receive a comfortable income from freelancing? Do you already have a steady flow of client projects each month?

You can’t predict your income as a freelancer the way you could while working as an employee. Freelancing full-time has its highs and lows. And unless you’re financially ready to take the leap, then it’s best to work towards it.

 

Grade yourself

The highest score is 30. So if you got more than 15 then you’re ready to pursue your freelance career headlong. But if you got anything less than 15, then don’t worry. It’s only a sign that you have to work on yourself and make the necessary preparations to transition to freelancing.
