3 Things every Beginner in Freelancing should Avoid

Working on online jobs is a dream of most Filipino today.  The freedom that it brings catches the attention of the many.  That’s why there are many comments found from the freelancing related Facebook group that beg to be hired.  This is not how to win the game.

In order to enjoy your freelancing journey and win a client, you must have to stay on your own track and don’t be pressured by those who are ahead of you.  Here are 3 things that you must avoid doing while you are still new in freelancing and online jobs.


You joined into different freelancing groups on Facebook and read those successful freelancing stories.  Stories about how easy they get their first client.  Some posted their dollar earnings while some posted about their long term and a kind client who gave them bonuses and free days with pay.

Don’t compare their progress to yours.  Don’t compare yourself to them.  You don’t know their whole story.  They might be doing online jobs for 5 years.  They might experience hundreds of rejection.  Instead, ask their advice and continue working out to get a client.


It is human nature to be hasty and result-oriented.  That’s why waiting for the first client or getting the first online job takes so much effort that may lead to anxiety.

Don’t punish yourself by rushing into getting the result you want.  After submitting a proposal, you already did your part.  Your worries don’t make the clients hire you.  Go on with your life – study, learn, and acquire new skills.  Some online jobs require two or more skills.

Always know your value.  Freelancing is about offering your service to help the clients solve their problems.  You will be paid based on your performance.  Do not beg anybody to hire you.  You have what they need, offer it with the right value.

Remember these three no-nos in freelancing to avoid pressure and discouragement.  Take your freelancing journey at your own pace and you will enjoy the process.
