My favourite thing about freelancing is that you can find a way to do it that works for YOU. You don’t have to follow a method, framework or theory. There’s no perfect way to be freelance. There is no perfect fix. Just find a way to freelance that works for you, and enjoy experimenting!
And if you do have impostor syndrome, I have a free Impostor syndrome Toolkit for you that might help!
