With so many choices of where to find freelancing work, it can be difficult to choose which platform you should dedicate your time to.
I know I have my favorites but not every platform out there is suitable to every freelancer – and not every freelance has the time to play around with what’s available to see what works.
It’s bound to happen at one point or another…
If you have any kind of freelance clients that don’t pay you in advance of your services, you are going to run into a time where your invoices go unpaid and your clients end up with past due invoices or, worse yet, not paying you at all.
Freelance work can be some of the most rewarding and the most challenging work out there.
You can be everywhere and nowhere — your work is defined by the job at hand, whether it’s a project that will take months to complete or just a couple of hours.
You aren’t defined by one single company, nor do the intricacies of day-to-day office life consume your time.
As a freelancer, you may have heard rumblings about the PRO Act recently. If so, you probably know that many freelancers see it as a threat to their livelihoods.

You, who was a beginner at freelancing not so long ago, have heard back from a prospective client and they liked your proposal.

If you’ve been a freelancer for any amount of time (or at least have looked into it), I’m sure you have heard of Upwork.
Upwork is a freelancer platform where you can make a profile and search for freelance gigs. And some freelancers make bank on this platform.
But, there are so many other sites like Upwork where freelancers can find paying gigs right now.
Hiring a virtual assistant for your business is a big decision that you can’t afford to take lightly.
Make the right choice and it can benefit you and your business in several ways. But make the wrong choice and it can cost you time and money.
Freelancing really is a dream job, isn’t it?
You get to make money doing what you love where and when you want to do it.
It’s an amazing way to make a living but, in order to make a living, you need to get paid.
