Is your Freelance Writing Career Progressing?
As a freelance writer you should strive to learn and progress, day after day. If your freelance writing career is not progressing it means you are standing still. For many, it is difficult to tell if they are moving in the right direction.
Here are three things you can look at to measure your progress as a freelance writer:
1. Income. Are you earning more money this year than you did last year? Do you see your income trending upwards, for the most part? If so, it is simple to see that you are making good progress. For most freelance writers, income stats tell the entire story.
2. Clients. You can also judge your progress by the number of clients that you have. Along with this, consider the types of clients as well as the projects that they are offering you. For instance, you may not have more clients than you did in the past but those you are working with are giving you more work due to your past performance.
3. Set goals. Have you reached your short and long term goals? Are you on track to do so? When you have goals for yourself you can easily determine if you are making progress. I strongly believe in the importance of setting goals. Do yourself a favor and write out a few goals that can help you advance your career.
In closing, you always want to be taking your freelance writing career to the next level. If you are moving forward, instead of looking back, you should be able to reach your goals in no time at all. Of course, you donâ€™t want to stop there!
