Introduction to freelancing In the beginning in can be pretty hard to get your head around/manage all the things necessary to become great at freelancing. Setting up a schedule, managing deadlines, charging per hour or by the end of the project, & keeping the client up to date with everything while working hard & doing your best to make a killer project for your portfolio. As with everything, the beginning is always the hardest & it is also the most scary part because you don’t have a clue on
Introduction Fears are existing in each one of us, but we cope differently with them. Some may never overcome fear in their life & others may. How can we overcome fear? Fear has many faces, & that is why it can be so hard to deal with them because it’s really hard to identify those faces. Sometimes fear is sitting & waiting in the back of one’s mind. Other times, it will hit you right in the face in a matter of split-seconds. In this article,
Introduction Growth Hacking is not just a buzzword at the moment. I truly believe that it is a way of life. All interactions that you have with people online/offline should grow them. For all of us, our main goal should be to use our energy for creating things that help other people. We have our talents & gifts for the sake of helping others. In this article, I will give you some tools, & ideas so you can become a killer growth hacker. Remember to steal what you
I also like to inspire people on their journey to reach their goals. I love to design, write, create read, train, ride, (motorbike), share & talk (mostly deep talking, small-talking, and gossip drains me). I believe that the things i create & share can help you and other people to better themself and make you realise that you and your work really matters. We need people that teaches other people how to be successful. I believe that everybody has unigue talents and gifts that they can use to, inspire, teach, share and help others with.
I never really liked going to school in fact I hated school, there were fights and people use to talk down to earch other and their classmates, even our teacher didn't like us because we didn't respect him/her. I was seen as a reserved daydreamer, always looking out the window, never wanted to give a crap about the people around me. So I was mostly alone, in front of my computer, getting to know the world wide web, or reading books. Up until 21 years old I didn't really know what to do with my life. I dropped out of military service after 5 days, and after that I went into depression. After that I was forced to apply for jobs, one lucky day I was for an interview on the local newspaper, I showed them some of my recent Photoshop picture manipulations that I have made in my free time, and i got the internship. Sitting next to me on our small messy desk was the Graphic Designer. Reserved as I was, we never talked to each other, but a had the feeling that I would like to do what he was doing in the future.
Fastforward, I completed a 2 year Multimedia design education. Then I started studying Web development, after 6 months I dropped out. Programming was not for me. Then I started my own company, & I studied for a bachelor in visual communicationwhere i learned, graphic design, & logo branding. After 1 year our startup failed. 6 months later I got my diploma in visual communication. 5 months later I got no job, 10 months later I got a job as a Graphic Designer taking the position from the guy sitting next to me years ealier. 10 months into the job they fired me. 6 months after that I was still without a job. After 9 months a got a job, then I was fired within 3 months. And now I am creating this site.
I guess the reason why I feel truly successful is because I just never stop doing what I love. Now that you've read about my failures, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, there you will find my achievements.
