Do the Freelance Dance: A Solopreneur’s Routine

Do the Freelance Dance: A Solopreneur’s Routine

#entrepreneurfail Freelance Dance

Excellent at web design? Can cook up a meal in 20 minutes?  Have an ear for music and teaching?  Aspiring freelancers everywhere, get your shoes on and start the freelance dance:

(To the tune of the Hokey Pokey)
You put your feelers out
Take the feedback in
Do some free work and,
Show it all around
You do the freelance dance and
Get a payment down
And that’s what it’s all about.

Many entrepreneurs got their start as freelancers. Freelancers sell their services for a fee or a rate. Finding these types of gigs requires a sellable skill, tenacity and patience.

To really differentiate, freelancers should find an untapped niche in the market and focus specifically on that narrow target market. Specialists often will find more projects than generalists – especially if the skill set is in demand.  Some sites to find freelance projects include OdeskElance and Freelance.com.
