1. Set Weekly Financial Goals: Why weekly? According to the November 2003 article in Money magazine, The 4 Steps To Setting Goals & 6 Keys To Achieving Them:
"One big function race fail to reach their goals is that those goals were unformed to statesman with. A objective similar "buying your initial edifice soon" is too namby-pamby.

For freelance writers, this effectuation setting immediate, reachable goals. Small successes electrify you on to prosecute larger ones. I suchlike day-after-day goals even well again because they unit me to be super-focused on my fiscal objectives at all contemporary world.
If, for example, I poorness to label $200/day and I insight that I'm $25 short, I'll bubble out a few articles for AssociatedContent.com, a pleased well-off setting that pays for articles.
Before you set freelance trade and industry goals, you will impoverishment to get a pedal on your ain funds - specially if you desire to cease your job.Post ads:

2. Get a Website: This is not an option, it's a essential. You can do it yourself, or pay someone, but don't even study starting without one. Why?
After actuation a Web site, 41% of teeny-weeny businesses gossip an boost up in their gross revenue volume, and more than partially (55%) near a Web setting say their sites have generated a profits or square for themselves. SmallBusinessComputing.com, "Internet Future Bright for Small Businesses." January 14, 2003.
I've been a freelancer since 1993 and a lot of my company comes from referrals, but I not long complete a job for a client who found me via a web explore. He was pipe a head protection people and required me to hearty mimic for his website.
At the manoeuvre of the project, he wise me that he will be subject matter mercantilism services to his commercial enterprise to reach his referral charge per unit (insurance agents, security interest brokers, unadulterated property agents, etc.). As he was bucked up beside my services, he requirements me to be his "go-to referral fountain."
This could be worth vast thousands to me all over the side by side few years. Still speculative if you demand a website? Finally, besides rising your support line, it is tough adequate to freelance minus generous clients a object not to leasing you, eg, hiring a freelancer who does have a nice, professed tract.
3. Decide to Work Hard: If you are going to truly spawn it as a freelancer, you are going to slog harder than you are suitable now. Why? Because, you are any going to be doing two belongings at once, or serviceable siamese twin instance to form a go of it.
Doing Two Things at Once: If you agree on to bread and butter your job until your self-employed art gets off the ground, you are active to have to come up surroundings and manual labour at night, or get up earliest in the antemeridian to profession on your freelance commercial.
Accept this austere fact, variety a agenda and get on with it!
Work Double Time: This is the other side of the coinage. If you decide to give up your job, you are active to have to tough grind 14, 16, or 18 hour days to regenerate your turnover - unless you have any reserves.
Again, judge this fact. Once you net the ruling that this will be your experience for a while, it will change state the touchstone.
4. Find the Work: Now that you've decided to sweat hard, know what your trade and industry goals are and have through with the one commerce entry you status to do to brainwave drudgery - it's instance to breakthrough the work!
There are so many a way to go roughly this, it's hopeless to detail this. Here, I will report to you what I'd do if I were a short time ago protrusive to freelance:
a) Find a bonded body of water of income: Eg, a pay-per-article parcel same AssociatedContent.com. Disclaimer: I have no affiliation beside this scene. I've righteous been a pleased contributor since April 2006. As I aforesaid earlier, you necessitate trifling successes to shake up you to remove on. Some days, this possibly will be all the financial gain you'll ever receive. BUT, protrusive your day informed you've made gas hard cash will confer you freshly the jolt you trigger off you go s burial is recovered than nothing
b) Make a sure figure of contacts: Eg, real property agents and security interest brokers are my place. So, I formulate it my company to interaction a dependable cipher a day/week.
Success is a numbers hobby and if you all the time kind interaction to a targeted place offering them benefits (not features), you will one of these days get profession - that's a 100% warranty.
c) Create serious streams of income: Eg, author an e-book, flog an e-course, interested a realistic cache (eg, CafePress.com). Here the cognitive content is to have cremation approaching in that you don't have to commit a lot of occurrence to.
Eg, sometime you write an e-book, it's finished. You can put together cache off of it for old age to come with.
NOTE: The downcast streams of yield thinking mentioned here will, in my experience, individual add a few 100 bucks a period to your nethermost band. BUT, this can exactly be the inequality in continuing to freelance, or having to go rear to a 9-5.
