What You’ll Need for Successful Online Freelancing
If you’ve ever held a full-time job, you know that there is a fair amount of preparation to be done before you show up for your first day. The same is true of online freelancing—in fact, it is more important here, because starting work as a freelancer means you are starting a business. Most new freelancers have never run a business before, and especially for them, spending some time up front ensuring that they are prepared can save a lot of time, money and hassle in the long run.
In this section, I will outline some of the most important areas in which I recommend you do some preparation before you dive into online freelancing. I will start by looking at time and space: how to arrange so you have time for work, and ensure that you have a comfortable place for doing it. I’ll discuss computer hardware and software, giving you an overview of what you’ll need, and also talk about Internet service and what to look for in that regard. Tax and accounting issues are important for freelancers, so we’ll delve into those briefly, and finally, we’ll explore some of the issues involved in helping family members and friends acclimate themselves to your new career.
