When I started my freelance business, I didn’t even know I was doing just that—starting a business. I only saw it as doing what I loved—editing—and getting paid for it! After a couple years, I realized that I should be intentional about maintaining and growing my freelance business, and I also realized all the mistakes I made along the way. It seems that I’ve learned by doing the wrong thing before learning the “right” way to do it. Nowadays, when I consult with clients about starting and growing their freelance businesses, I am armed with tips so they don’t make the same mistakes I did.
