Be Confident in your Freelance Writing Skills

Confidence is an important trait that every successful freelance writer shares. If you are not confident in your own abilities, why would you think that others would be? When it comes down to it, there are three major issues that can and will occur if you are not confident in your freelance writing skills:

1. If you are not confident, it will show through when communicating with clients. You may not want to believe it, but this can put doubt in the mind of those you work with. On the other side of things, if you are confident in what you are doing your clients and prospects will always feel as if you are in control and ready to help them at every turn of the road.

2. If you are not confident, you will lower your prices when asked and sometimes without any prompt at all. Over the years I have found that writers who are not confident in their work feel that they are not worth a lot of money. In the end, this results in smaller earnings and often times a shorter career. Be confident enough to set reasonable prices, and then stick with them when negotiating with clients. 

3. If you are not confident, some clients will walk all over you. While this is unfortunate, it is the absolute truth. Many people in this industry look for those who they can push around, and then do so as often as possible. When you get pushed around you will lower prices, and attempt to live up to unreasonable demands. Freelance writers who exude confidence do not get singled out in this capacity nearly as much.

As you can see, it is very important to be confident if you are hoping to achieve freelance writing success. And remember, you do not need years of experience to be confident in your skills. This is a mindset that anybody can take advantage of!
