I’m 25 now. Not rich yet. Finished college with a bachelors in business administration and am hardly scraping by with web development work. I’ve been in California living with my older brother for about 2.5 months now.
Thinking about my situation makes me feel like shit. Not much money, hardly any coming in, although I work a lot. I’ve not been charging like I should which is why. But the referrals trickle in and it seems to be moving forward again. I have to spend time marketing myself on a continual basis on upWork and even on other non-freelance places to get more high quality business.
My site fitness site still isn’t done. I changed 3 times before once again being set back by having to learn Angular. It feels like a perpetual setback and I wonder if my strategy is worth continuing. Three years from now, where will I be? If I keep doing what I’m doing and do all the right things I’ll be good to go.
I notice all this negativity and I must find a way to transform it in to passion again. It is that way because I’m not clear on my goals and objectives and strategies. I’m a mishmash right now.
So let’s see..
My stress comes from a lack of focus…
So let’s correct that…
If I put 100% of my effort into freelance web development, can I make more money faster? Yes. Can I maybe hit $5k/mo within 2 months? Probably. How can I do that? What is needed for that?
1. Do the work myself
2. Do the marketing exclusively and pay someone to do the work.
I want to pay someone to do the work and sell the rest myself. This is what I’ll do.
Find two or three freelancers who can do the services I need and have them aware I want to send them work. Then do all the marketing to find clients to pay fixed prices for website projects and services.
This is what I’ll do. Goal is to make a profit of $10k per month by December.
With the money I make from this I can pay someone to build the fitness site for me.
