Struggles of Freelancing

Things I am learning that can be difficult as a Freelance Graphic Designer. I am enjoying learning new things and I love what I am doing.

First Year

Learning how the business side of things work. Invoices, selling yourself, promotion etc.

Getting good projects.

Early in Freelancing it is difficult getting work.

Getting Quality Clients. Working with clients in different time zones.

Next Few Years

Raising prices.

Figuring out the next steps.

As a freelancer, you don’t get to work with a team as much and you don’t get a chance to learn from experienced team leaders and problem solvers.
