Boss Mindset: Wisdom

February 5

In this new article, which is the third part of a series on Boss Mindset, Sarah Duran discusses the contrast between traditional employment and the independence of freelancers; she emphasizes the importance of self-driven professional development for freelancers, encouraging us to see our skills as an asset we control.

"Clients are not looking for an employee that they have to tell what to do, train, and manage along the way. Clients are looking for top-tier experts who understand precisely what they need and then independently execute."

Sarah highlights how we as freelancers must manage our brand, market our skills, and actively seek growth opportunities. The entrepreneurial approach not only demands continuous learning and adaptation from us but also involves refining our focus on what we do best over time. By evolving client relationships, saying no to unfit projects, and delegating or outsourcing when necessary, we can enhance our value proposition, solve more significant problems for clients, and achieve personal and financial growth.
