When it comes to being self employed, one of the biggest words of advice I can give you is that you need to take things slow. As with any job, you have to work your way up. The thing that really seems to throw people off about working online is that the requirements can completely change depending on who you’re working for.
In a way, it’s like there are not any rules. This is why you definitely need to take things slow and get a feel for the line of work you have chosen. With anything, there is going to be a learning curve and an order to things that you need to get through. Since everyone is going to do things differently, it’s best to be open and honest with yourself about what you’re doing and which aspects you enjoy and which ones you would like to do without. This way, you can create the best work atmosphere for your individual needs.
It’s always important to understand that things aren’t going to happen overnight. Working online is not about getting rich quick, it’s about gaining more control over your life and having the flexibility to set your own hours if you’d like.
How long it takes you to reach your goals all depends on how much work and time you are willing to put in and how quickly you learn new techniques and expand the range of services you provide and also the number of clients. Gradually, you can hire people to work for you and so, you can provide services to even more clients and thats the way you grow…
