The sun will come out, tomorrow…

27 Sep

Freelancers have to be business people. They often forget this along the way, specifically the starters. Freelancing is as much a career choice as staying at one company and growing up the corporate ladder. You have to be good at whatever you are selling, as well as good at doing a  whole lot of other things to keep your business afloat.

I think that entrepreneurs have to be born optimists. You have to believe in chances and that something brilliant is just around the corner. This does not mean, as some poor freelancers do do, that you always have an eye out for something better to the detriment of your current assignment. No. A commitment is a commitment. But if an assignment falls through, or something ends much quicker than expected, or you are in between assignments you need to believe that something will work out.

Of course you have to make opportunities happen, by being a business person and marketing yourself/skills. But a good dose of inborn optimism is also very helpful.

So in the words of Annie:

The sun’ll come out, tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be sun…
