Diana Schneidman has been terminated from four full-time jobs. Each time she found exciting freelance and consulting opportunities she could do from home in locations ranging in size from smaller, almost rural communities to suburbs of major cities.
Now she has distilled into three steps her secrets on how to land lucrative freelance and consulting work:
1. Decide what type of work to pursue based on how similar it is to your last good job. When you already have relevant experience and credentials, it is so much easier to start generating substantial income. Almost any kind of corporate professional, technical or administrative work can be translated into self-employment.
2. Contact the best corporate prospects as directly as possible. Telephoning is an effective way to do this and it’s simple to do once you learn what to say.
3. Get real! Define “quickly” as 30 days, not 30 minutes. All marketing takes time. If your expectations are realistic, your journey to well-paying work will feel satisfying instead of frustrating.
Diana freelances right from home as a writer and researcher specializing in the insurance and mutual fund industries, serving clients across America. She developed her business while living in several residences—some were a five-minute drive from commercial corn fields, others were near metro commuter train stations.
However, because she visits few clients in their offices, it doesn’t matter where she is. In fact, some freelancers prefer to work for far-away clients so they are never pressured to invest unpaid time in marketing visits to prospects’ offices.
Diana’s ebook, Start Freelancing And Consulting, explains exactly how anyone can land and manage their right assignments. Readers are relieved to see how they can work for clients across the country and even around the globe without abandoning their current lives.
