Freelancing: What to Do With Your Days Off

For the first time in my career I’m now working as a full-time freelancer. Not having a staffed position is new to me and freelancing has a steep learning curve. But as I pick things up I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned in a series of blogs called Freelancing.

I apologize for not posting much recently, I’ve been super slammed with work. It’s been non-stop shooting and editing for the last few weeks. Which is an AMAZING thing. But now that I have a day off to sit down and write, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about what to do with your days off.

Freelancing: 3 Tips for Overcoming Mistakes

For the first time in my career I’m now working as a full-time freelancer. Not having a staffed position is new to me and freelancing has a steep learning curve. But as I pick things up I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned in a series of blogs called Freelancing.

For the first installment I’ve decided to focus on something that applies to everyone, not just freelancers: overcoming mistakes. We’ve all made mistakes. And if you haven’t, you will. Overcoming these mistakes is a crucial part of freelancing. If the people you work with can’t rely on you, they’ll stop hiring you. How to deal with accidents and mistakes sounds like common knowledge, but a lot of people can’t (or just don’t) handle the situations well.
