015 "I’m fortunate enough to hand-pick projects I work on”

Part of the attraction of switching to full-time freelance is the ability to hand-pick what to work on and to have multiple project possibilities - compared to working for just one company. This week, Andy runs us through his routine after coming back from Europe, talks about the impact of vacations on his freelance projects - and the effect it had on his earnings.

Part of the attraction of switching to full-time freelance is the ability to hand-pick what to work on and to have multiple project possibilities - comapred to working for just one company.

This week, Andy runs us through his routine after coming back from Europe, talks about the impact of vacations on his freelance projects - and the effect it had on his earnings.

In this episode, we also talk about:

  1. Dealing with a vacation ‘hangover’ and getting back into the groove
  2. The importance of personal accountability for freelancers
  3. What’s more valuable? Having a client who calls you all the time and pays half the rate versus having a client who calls you once a year who pays double the rate. You’ll have to find a balance.
  4. The realities of working remotely as a freelancer
