Entrepreneur and Freelance Career status?

Freelancing shows a rapid growth in the past few years with the help of today's modern technology. It's a way to getting paid for a work done. Most stay at home moms that I knew successfully achieve a freelance status while others to entrepreneurship who fully discover their capacity to lead a successful self-employment journey.

Sure, deciding to leave your day job to be a freelance full-time is pretty much scary and being an Entrepreneur takes a lot of courage (and capital!) to know where to start. 

Quoting from Seth Godin, a marketing guru and best-selling author on the difference between an entrepreneur and a freelancer: "Freelancers get paid for their work. If you're a freelance copywriter, you get paid when you work. Entrepreneurs use other people's money to build a business bigger than themselves so that they can get paid when they sleep."
Oh, who wouldn't want to get paid while they sleep? You decide. Why not both  a Freelancer and Entrepreneur that both satisfies your financial goals and your desire to doing what you love?

I gathered the following helpful motivational thoughts before considering  to launch a  Freelance or Entrepreneur career status:

1. Don't sabotage your own success.
Develop a "Can Do" attitude and make it happen. Have a visual of your success and make it leads you to clearer path to take. Have a confident image and a role model to learn and be inspire to what and how they do it.

2. Ask yourself "What am I passionate about?"

The answer will surely lead you to living the life you wanted, or atleast finding your purpose and enjoying every minute of work. In an Adrian Rubin interview, a successful Entrepreneur and Freelance Creative director, when asked on how he get started in the business and what inspired him?

He answers:

"Throughout my childhood, I always felt I was creative and interested in the arts which I tried to follow after going to college. I started my freelance business after working in customer service and feeling I wasn't living the life I wanted in terms of my career. Eventually, I moved to Brooklyn and began knocking on doors looking for work until I got my first project as Creative Director."

I personally think that living the life you wanted is a feeling of being happy and satisfied after realizing your deepest desires and capacities. I am doing a freelance in writing and it somehow makes me fulfilled. So try considering first your strength that can help you find the happiness of doing what you love.

3. Be an Entrepreneur at Heart

"Be resourceful, dedicated, take action and be ambitious" these actually leads to a concrete and attainable business plan to achieve your goals. Follow Adrian Rubin's advice to always remain dedicated and trusting the process of finally start getting work.

4. Learn from your Mistakes

or  learn from others' mistakes as we don't have enough room for plenty of it. And while it is good to be a risk taker, it's wiser to pursue a realistic and attainable, not just a promising business idea.

Try observing the habits and business decisions of a successful business owners in which you can save yourself from potential physical harm or financial loss.

5. Identify where you're Good at

In this way, you are investing your precious time and money in the right business. I once attended a seminar that advertised guaranteed ways on how to escape your day job to becoming your own boss. Sad to say, it will not point out what path or business to start, it is more on coaching and identifying the one that can possibly works best for you.

WHY? Simply because all realization and action will all depends on you. There are many who asked for an advise on where to invest their savings and what business to start? The answer is, it depends on what you are capable of doing and the willingness to take that responsibility. 

Business seminars will teach you to identify, assess, shape and act on opportunities! but you alone can make it possible. Agree?

Here's the key points to learn that can help you get started: 

  • Turning passion into business.
  • Finding hidden business opportunity.
  • The common mistakes aspiring Entrepreneurs make and how to avoid it.
  • A low risk approach in starting a business.
These  all boils down on identifying and realizing your capabilities and goals and becoming  committed  to building a better world through responsible, holistic business practices and ventures.


  1. These points are very motivational and just what I actually needed. Will turn my passion into business right away! Thanks so much for this. <3

  2. Agree with all your key points. You need passion to continue doing the things that you want and earn from it. Like blogging, it is easy to start but it is not easy to maintain it but you can turn it into business.

  3. I'm working from home for quite some time now and I was really hoping I can find a passive income. But it's not easy, it takes a lot of brainstorming. I wanted to be an entrepreneur pero I'm still trying to figure out what I really love to do. :D

  4. I've had experience in handling our family business. I'm also a freelancer now. I think both are challenging in many ways. At this point though, I'm thinking of eventually turning my freelancing gig into a registered business too in the future.

  5. I have been working from home for almost 3 years now and I can say that I may not be earning enough to sustain my family's needs but I am enjoying it. I get to earn a few extra for my family without the everyday traffic hustle. And I am planning on focusing more on my blogging this year. Would love to hear your thoughts about this too. More motivation please hehe.

  6. Yes to all these! I've been "working in freedom" for ten years already. Everything here is spot on.

  8. Great tips! Working with something you're truly passionate about makes everything easier, as if you're not working at all. :)

  9. I feel I'm both. I do freelancing jobs now so I can earn using the same skills I use for entrepreneurship. I really want to start my own business and manage it and give people jobs. =)

  10. I've been trying to figure out how to be able to pursue my passions and earn what I need to support my kids. It's tough to do both and earn!

  11. yes to all of these tips, we've been working from home and planning to put a business soon.
