Hi Guys! Let’s drop some truth bombs on the most popular freelancing myths!
Myth# 1 You will see your salary triple💲
Well, I must say this is the most common myth which has been attracting people towards freelancing.
It’s not that easy! Good negotiation skills coupled with experience and an excellent reference-backed reputation you can end up earning a lot more money than your corporate salary. But, it’s just not that easy to triple your salary initially.
Do you want to burst any other myths? Starting typing…👇

Myth #2 Freelancers don’t have a boss
You may not have one single boss anymore, but you’ll soon notice that instead, you’ll have a handful of mini-bosses – your new clients – each with a different idea of how that project should be carried out. @Ansh Bro Drop some truths here too, like you’re doing in my Dm.

Haha @Ishaan When I started as a freelancer the most common thing I heard was,” You have to charge less to win over clients.”
However, the truth is that, Clients pay for and look for quality. If you price yourself too low, you can put people off who assume you won’t be up to the job or provide a valuable service.

Agree @Ansh ! But I think in some cases, experience counts. As a newbie freelancer it’s difficult to attract clients, and if you have kept your charges high. Clients might prefer someone who is more experienced and charging quite the same prices as yours.
