I have worked as a freelancer for five years now, and I have loved every second. I can travel anywhere in the world, work with diverse clients, and do the thing that I love: writing. Freelancing is hard work, but it gives you incomparable job satisfaction and freedom.

So here goes for week one of our four-week plan.

Week One: Discover Your Freelance Identity

Freelancing, in a nutshell, is being a one-person business — a self-employed professional offering services to various clients. That’s the technical definition, but there are as many ways of being freelance as there are freelancers. Everyone has a different client base and a different business plan. This first week is all about finding out how you want to freelance and what services you can offer.

Exercise One: Ask Yourself the Right Questions
