I felt pretty much zero panic about how I would continue to earn my living and support my family. I honestly didn’t give a single thought to my livelihood in that crisis moment. And that’s because I’m a freelance writer.
There seems to be a general perception that freelancing is inherently insecure, that no matter how long or successfully you’ve been doing it you’re always just a few beats away from a devastatingly bad month. But this isn’t true.
But amidst all those many, many pages of wisdom you can read in blog and books, I don’t remember ever seeing the most important thing about freelancing, the nugget of truth that — if truly understood — will free you up to take the freelance world by storm in your own special way.
The better the relationship you have with those you work with, the more likely they will be to hire you again … and again … and again. At each new job they go to, they always hire you whenever the need for a freelancer of your kind arises.
