Recently I was listening to one of my many podcasts, and I started listening to a personal finance podcast that was set in terms of a side hustle. The interview was with Eric Rosenberg. It was in line with what I’m trying to accomplish, so I went to go learn more about Eric.
Curious how he made his money through freelance writing, I saw that he participated in a speaking engagement in Alabama. From the article, you can click a link to go see his video on “How to Turn Your Freelance Side Hustle into a Full Time Job”.
Most things he spoke about I have tried to incorporate into my quest:
- Get a website
- Find your niche
- Advertise yourself
I’ve been freelancing for over 7 years now, and at this moment, I have 2 stable clients, both are marketing agencies who need a web developer “on staff”. While this is good, I could handle more. I have several websites to help advertise my services, but I don’t nearly spend enough time advertising them. Maybe it’s self sabotage not to do this (for fear of becoming too busy), but I imagine the transition to full time self-employment would seem more possible once I did. Only time (and effort) will tell.
