Freelancing is a myth, you cannot make money with it.
This is the way I used to think 4 years back, when an opportunity came to me and I worked and didn't get paid.
So, I started my career as a school teacher and carried on. But I had to leave the job for my motherhood, and I was on the verge of despair thinking how to start over again, but I can't leave the house, as my little one is there, depending on me.
So, I googled and searched here and there what to do, how to make money online, is it even possible?
Then suddenly, I got to see an opportunity to write a blog on maternity photoshoot for their website on Instagram and I thought of giving it a try.
Here I must include that I love to read blog, so I decided to take up the opportunity, and to my surprise I earned my first freelancing money!
😇My first gig was 250 rupees and I was overwhelmed, then I started following top freelancers such as Saheli Chatterjee and Saloni Srivastava and I found their free content so useful.
I got my next opportunity from a Facebook group, though the project didn't run well. But I met another person Shekhar Gupta ✈ ✈ ✈ whom I found very helpful and a great human being.
🙏My LinkedIn family also uplifts me always. I would love to mention Rafiq D. who gave me some references and gave me confidence.
🙏Nevertheless, I would like to mention my HustlePost Academy who are very helpful and I get inspired from each one of the members. Shelo Aura, Huda Chougle I get inspired by you two.
🌟Presently, I have started my career as a VA and about to sign a contract with a client for SMM and building a website.
Though, I have just stepped into the world of freelancing, I feel very much elated being a freelancer.
I hope I can make it and will make it big.
And, now I can proudly say that freelancing is for real and I am proudly entering into this world.
😇Please share your story of struggle, success, failure in the comment section. I would love to know each one of your stories.
