When starting a freelancing business, most people think about the paperwork they need to put together or about their branding strategy. But one crucial element of freelancing that is often neglected is the emotional side. What would you tell friends that expect you to be available at noon, simply because 'you work from home'? And how will you act when a client is late with a payment? Setting your beliefs, policies, and standards as a freelancer in advance will help you stay motivated and bounce back quickly, even when things get tough. In this Jolt, you'll define the rules of your freelancing game: when is it okay to say yes and, more importantly, when is it okay to say no. You'll learn to train yourself, your family and friends, and your clients about your workflows and boundaries. You'll leave this Jolt with a list of values and policies you'll want to adhere to with confidence.

Questions this talk answers:

01

What are your core values as a freelancer?

02

What are your personal and business boundaries?

03

How do you train yourself, your clients, and your family & friends what it means to be a freelancer?
