Ask for Work

Land Your First Freelance Gig week 4

It’s week four of Land Your First Freelance Gig, and it’s time to get real.

Here’s an annoying truth about working for yourself: Work doesn’t just find you; you have to ask for it.

This remains true no matter how long you’ve been doing what you’re doing or how amazing you are at doing it. Asking for work as a freelancer is a totally normal and necessary part of the job. And it’s intimidating and overwhelming for a lot of us — hi, fellow introverts, perfectionists and self-loathers!

So let’s practice.

This week, you’ll learn:

  • Why you have to keep asking for work.

  • People are happy to recommend you (you’re not a burden).

  • Not every ask has to be big.

  • How to piggyback off of life events.
