Freelancing is the perfect way to becoming a full-time entrepreneur. However, it's not the easiest, and often freelancers have problems that they struggle to overcome.
This infographic shares the problems that freelancers face, and underneath it, we share how coaches can help freelancers create profitable businesses!
Freelancing is often the route that people take to becoming a small business owner. It's a low-cost, low investment startup that can give you a taste of whether you're cut out to run a small business or if you should return to being an employee.
Initially setting up as a freelancer is easy, however, it soon becomes harder.
Problems Freelancers Face:
The first problem that a freelancer face is finding enough work. They often get caught in the feast-famine cycle because it's only them to market their business, and they carry out the work. As a business coach you can help your freelancers break out of this rut.
The second problem that freelancers face is getting a grip on their finances. We know because it's a common problem that every entrepreneur faces when starting out. Many hours are wasted on selecting an account, choosing an accounting system, and generally understand what is happening with the money in the business.
The third problem freelancers face is boundaries. Family members who never rang you at the office (because you're working) start phoning and popping around all the time. Whilst it's lovely to see them, it's also your work time! Then there are office boundaries - when is it okay for people to walk into your workspace? How do you indicate they can't come in? What's the protocol when you're on a call or about to jump on Zoom?
The fourth freelancing problem is around taxes. How much are they? Where do you register? What documents do you need? All of these things increase the pressure on freelancers.
The fifth problems freelancers face is around marketing their business. Do they need a website? A portfolio? Something else?
