The importance of curiosity and observation
Freelancing is often seen as a way to break free of the constraints of 9-5 jobs. However, there are also disadvantages that come along with this lifestyle. Here are seven things freelancers are not good at.
A freelancer will always struggle with decision-making regarding certain aspects like building good clientele, personal marketing, pricing the services, setting the right priorities and deadlines.
Freelancers tend to be good at what they do but find it hard to build a good relationship with clients. They can spend hours perfecting the project for clients but will struggle to set aside a few minutes and talk with clients to build their relationship.
Freelancers find it hard to consistently deal with client change requests. They struggle to find that balance point where they don't end up doing a lot of work for free and can still keep clients happy with the result.
Freelancers always find it hard to balance client work and personal marketing. Most of their day goes into client work, and the remaining few hours go to their personal life. Striking the right balance in client work and self-promotion has always been a struggle for freelancers.
Freelancers always find saying NO to clients complicated. They are so used to always thinking about what's best for the client that it becomes difficult to say no because of the fear of offending, upsetting, or losing the work. But it's a necessary part of the job, so you need to learn how to do it well with time!
As Freelancers, we are bound to work with all types of clients; some will be a pleasure to work with, some will be like your best friend, and some will make you feel like you are working in hell. Still, we would struggle to fire these bad clients because of overthinking, fear of losing work, and other irrelevant things. If it's not working out, QUIT! Move On!

As a freelancer, you have no boss, no mentor, and you make all your own decisions about what work gets done, and when it gets done. This can be great for some people, but it's hard on others who need structure in their lives.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
