Start a freelancing business
If you’re just starting freelancing or thinking about it, we’ve got you covered with all the steps you need to start a business and get your first clients.
Even if you plan on moonlighting and freelancing on the side, the articles and in-depth guides will help no matter what stage your business is at.
While a lot of resources out there focus on how to incorporate a business, open a bank account, and so on, here at Double Your Freelancing we know that succeeding as a new freelancer depends on two things:
The right mindset.
It’s critical to understand that you’re no longer an employee or work for anyone else, but that you now run your own business.
Clients and cash flow.
Yes, it’s important to incorporate and get a bank account. But that’s all for nothing if you don’t have any clients who can pay you.
OUR VIEWS ON STARTING A BUSINESS:
- You’re no longer an employee, so don’t treat getting clients like you would applying for a job.
- It’s actually riskier to be an employee than it is to freelance. Find out why.
- You should never work for free. Find out why.
Whether through 4+ years of in-depth articles, premium courses, the conferences and events we host, or our podcast, our #1 goal is to help you become a more successful freelancer.
