What I Didn’t Know Before I Started
Before I started Uptima, I wasn’t sure I had all of the components in place to begin freelancing, marketing myself and taking on work. Uptima’s freelancer course takes a thorough week-by-week approach to covering everything—from clarifying my service offer, to building a website, to understanding the legal aspects of running my business and preparing contracts. In two months, I was up and running and have been self-employed ever since.
What I Learned to Help Me Build a Freelancer Business
One practice that changed in my business is assessing my capacity to work with prospective clients. Now that I have a greater understanding of what I offer as a service, I can determine which clients are mutually beneficial for me to work with.
What I Accomplished in My Business
The freelancer program helped me determine how much my time and skills are worth to me as well as to gain certainty about what my other personal and professional values are. This gave me the confidence to charge the appropriate rates to make my freelance practice sustain and thrive, and to give myself raises as necessary. Uptima taught me how to create client packages and begin to market myself and my work beyond my existing relationships.
