Hey there, my enthusiasm in learning to freelance is still burning. I am still eager to continue my schedule to reach my goal. Someone might say that it is impossible and a waste of time. But you’re the one who can tell about it. If you think it’s a waste of time, then do something, prove it that there is a pot of gold waiting for you at the end of this journey. There may be a rock on the road that you will encounter, just like my first client that I bumped into a week ago (February 1, 2017), it might not be a good start but it will make me stronger. At least, I can ponder what’s wrong with my output, what should I have been done to make it right, and what should I expect in my future clients.
In freelancing, there are unexpected things that you have to prepare for. It is better to be ready for any battle. There might be tasks that your client will ask for, but if you are clueless on how to start and deliver a good result on this task that will be the time that you will stain your reputation as a freelancer.
I started scanning for the job ads in UpWork, then I found out that there are more than a hundred of computer skills that most of the clients in the platform are looking for in a Virtual Assistant. I was surprised that using Facebook is one of those skills, and I can’t even know the software to use to schedule posts in that Social Media. Yep, you can schedule your hourly, daily, or monthly post on Facebook. So, I’ve made a list of computer skills that every Virtual Assistant should possess before hitting the road to freelancing.
In your journey always make a checklist of the things that you needed. This might be your guideline in learning so you will not be stuck on a stopover.
Chao! See you next time!
