I’ve recently discussed what it’s actually and truly like to be a freelancer. Perhaps after reading it, you think you can handle all the dark truths. But there’s more. In order to determine if you have what it takes to be a freelancer, you need to possess quite a long list of characteristics. If you don’t possess these qualities naturally in real life, you won’t last long in the freelance world.
Check out the list of characteristics below to determine if you have what it takes. And I don’t mean, read this list and check off things you convince yourself you have. I mean, you actually have them. If you don’t, you may not be able to avoid throwing in the towel and heading back to your soul sucking 9-5.
