Making the jump to freelancing is extremely scary and exciting. The thought of doing something that you love and getting paid for it is truly amazing. Taking that thought and turning it into a reality is where a lot of aspiring freelancers fall short.

In order to find time the time to actually work towards making the leap, you are going to have to make sacrifices.

“Making sacrifices

In order to make time to do anything, you have to sacrifice. This is something you do almost on a daily basis. A few common examples:

You give up a few minutes to help your significant other with something.

You take a day to help a friend move.

You give up your seat on the bus for someone.

Sacrificing doesn’t have to sound so bad. You sacrifice for the good of others, so why not make sacrifices for your own well-being?

I love watching Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, playing video games, and browsing the internet too, but those aren’t things that will make a successful living. No one will remember you for watching Netflix. Doing something valuable with your time is what will.
