I just came across a terrific quote from the late author Marilyn Ferguson, and I want to share it with you.
It has to do with two F-words — one of ’em bad, the other good.
Here’s the quote:
“Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every Fear is a Freedom.”
Said another way, do what you fear and you’ll find liberation.
Ever notice that when you do something uncomfortable or scary, that’s when real magic happens?
Here’s a third F-word — another good one, I think:
Freelancing is a means to a more flexible, free life. And here’s the neat thing…
Despite what a LOT of people think, being a freelancer doesn’t mean you have to be a writer.
That’s certainly a great option, but I know of freelancers who are photographers, bookkeepers, tutors, chefs, landscapers, events planners, and massage therapists.
I know of others who are telemarketers, data processors, interior designers, and illustrators.
Whatever your skill, you can move out of the restrictive 9-to-5 job factory and into an adaptable freelance lifestyle.
Problem is, going out on your own can be scary.
But it doesn’t need to be.
I’m busy right now putting the finishing touches on a package called Fearless Freelancing 101. It’s designed to help you create your own freedom as quickly as possible, and it contains the accumulated know-how of two crusty freelancers who’ve both “done the freelance thing” for a long time now (one of them’s me, by the way).
Full disclosure: This package is not a get-rich-quick system or shortcut to success. It offers truckloads of great advice on how to size up your strengths and weaknesses and generate enough self-confidence to get rolling. But the work’ll all be done by you.
I’ll keep you posted about the launch date.
So what’s keeping YOU from jumping off the ol’ treadmill?
