BONUS: Ask Rezzz Extra where you learn more about the "why" and how my door is always open for you
I love this question because it’s the “why” and we all don’t start freelancing just because we want to work more.
Today I share with you a very personal story of mine and why I do what I do.
It was something that I discovered at a very young age, but my family environment played a HUGE part in shaping me as a the person I am today.
There’s a reason behind the work we do, especially the work we choose to do as freelancers
For you that could be travel, or spending time with family like me, or work on projects that you have a close passion to.
What ever that is, if you don’t keep that why in focus, you’ll de-rail yourself and during the times of bad, you’ll feel the desire to turn back.
It’s your why that will allow you to push through hard times, allow you to celebrate the great times, and be the goals you have for the rest of your life.
I encourage you to take some time and reflect on your why, put it front in center of all the decisions you have to make and make sure as a freelancer those decisions you make align directly with your why.
Otherwise, why are you freelancing?
