Lessons from Freelancing

I have always wanted to write and I think that one of the best things that has happened to me was when I "met" my current "employer." I am using quotes because I am using these words in ways that are not the same as their normal usage. I "met" my "employer" by applying as a freelance writer for his online content provider service. That was more than 3 years ago and I have not regretted working with him.

More than earning a good bit from my freelance work, I have learned lessons along the way. I have learned to be more disciplined. I have learned the value of keeping to my commitments. I have learned how to manage my time. I have learned technical stuff such as SEO, conversion rate optimization, and monetizing blogs. For others, freelancing is something that they have to do for financial reasons. I think that with all that I have gone through, it has become more than that. It has become part of my development as a person. You should give it a shot.
