As a freelancer, you tend to work solo. Most often, you work from home and don’t have any colleagues to chat with over the course of your workday.
It’s natural to feel isolated sometimes. But feeling lonely can have adverse effects on your productivity, your motivation, and also on morale.
This is why it’s that much more important to create relationships with other freelancers so you can talk about your mutual projects, share tips and advice, and inspire one another.
Today there are tools to help you build a professional network, even if you’re just getting started and don’t know very many people in your industry.
- participate in events like after-work socials;
- join a freelancer collective;
- rent a desk in a coworking space;
- talk with other freelancers via social media.
It’s a great opportunity to forge relations that could potentially open doors to new projects with clients further down the line.
Between your daily workload, admin, bookkeeping, prospecting, networking...the day in the life of a freelancer fills up quickly. But by being well organized, you can manage your company efficiently and with ease. You should now have the tools to help you launch your business as a freelancer.
