Entrepreneurship is awesome and freelancing is a great start for your entrepreneurial journey.
However, it isn’t going to be an easy task managing yourself, your freelancing career, find clients, deliver work, get paid, and then go find some more clients only to deliver more work, and then chase invoices all the more.
As you can see, actually going through this cycle isn’t as easy as it was to write it out. We all come with our biases, emotions, likes dislikes, and our own ways of doing things.

Feeling down the dumps? Lost your mojo? Is the act of getting yourself motivated an uphill task everyday? Have you lost the fire, the intensity, and the energy to wake up every morning because of a few instances of unpaid invoices, bad clients, or because no projects are showing up at your door?
Welcome to freelancing 101. You are now a part of a huge, growing group of independent contractors and what you are feeling now (or might feel later) is as common as common cold.
It could be so unsettling to work so hard and not get paid for it due to a client’s vanishing act. It could be heartbreaking to not be respected for what you do and when there are instances of project scope creep.
But unlike most people, you have amazing choices to combat with your freelancing blues. Since, throwing your laptop away or yelling at your dog are not options that help, here’s what you do:
