When meeting clients, you wear jeans and a t-shirt

Your hair is a mess, all the time

Your phone manner is terrible (you answer with "hello", and nothing else)

You have never started conversation with a stranger

You really dislike sales and feeling like a sales person

You don’t have a plan for your freelancing career, you are just floating along

You have 0 business skills and have no idea how to develop them

 

That's why I'm scratching my arse in a new city not receiving any phonecalls. Damn :mellow:

I answer the phone by saying "hello".

- I know... it's just so crazy it might work.

 

I sleep past 12pm as many mornings as I can.

- It's one of the best parts of being a freelancer.

 

When meeting clients, I wear jeans and a t-shirt.

- Dress comfortably and bring a bad-ass skill set. Anything more is posturing.

 

Thanks (but no thanks) for the tips, brian.
