freelance-skills-to-learn 2022

If you’re looking to switch to a better career this year, the first thing you should do is find and develop a skill.

Not just any skill but a marketable skill!

In this post, I’m showcasing some of the top freelance skills you can learn this year to start a new career and earn more money as a freelancer.

My previous post about the highest paying freelance jobs outlines the categories for earning the highest income as a freelancer. The list below goes to the barebones of those categories to suggest specific skills you should start developing right away.

If you’ve read my book or followed the getting started guide, you’ll notice that one of the first steps I suggest for beginners is to find a marketable skill that has good demand. It takes some research to find a skill with enough demand to market as a service. 

For this list, I gathered data from several surveys (from Flexjobs, Indeed, and UpWork) to find the skills with the highest demand.

10+ Easy Work From Home Jobs For Disabled People

If you’re living with an illness or a disability that prevents you from getting a job. And looking for an easy way to earn money from home. Then this post is for you.

Trying to provide for yourself, your family, and make money while being disabled can be tough. I understand this struggle better than anyone.

A few years ago, my mom was in an accident. While crossing the road, a bus literally ran over her. After going through several surgeries she survived but it left her disabled. She couldn’t walk or even stand.

My mom lived and worked in the UK. She provided for herself and our family here in Sri Lanka. Her accident affected all of our family.

It affected her mentality more than anything because she is an energetic person who worked with a passion. Being disabled made her powerless and unimportant. As a result, she was diagnosed with depression.

5 Benefits Of Registering A US Company For Freelancing

Benefits Of Registering A US Company

I missed out on many great opportunities over the years.

I turned down clients who offered much higher rates. And I had to turn down partnership offers from some great companies.

These deals would’ve made me a much better freelancer. If only I had a PayPal account.

Popular payment services like PayPal and Stripe are still not fully available in developing countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. And it looks like the service won’t be coming to these countries any time soon.

Most clients don’t want to pay freelancers via direct wire transfers. And having to register with weird payment services that they’ve unheard of, always makes them less excited to hire freelancers from developing countries.

This has been a problem for me for many years. It’s not just about PayPal either. When I mention I’m located in Sri Lanka, a third-world country, many clients make lowball offers. And sometimes even never replies to an email.

I recently realized that there’s actually a solution to all these problems. And that is to register a company in the US.

7+ Highest Paying Freelance Jobs For Earning A Steady Income

highest-paying-freelance-jobs

If you’re just starting out as a freelancer, you’ll want to get started the right way in the career path that generates the highest income, right?

Many new freelancers think that way. And it makes sense, doesn’t it?

But, it’s a lot more complicated than that. Just because a skill has a higher demand or pays well than the others doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best path to follow.

There’s a reason why some writers get paid $5 on Fiverr to write a 1000-word article while others make $100 for the same job somewhere else.

Getting paid well depends on your skill level, experience, and quality of work.

Having said that, it’s also important to know your market and see which type of jobs and skills get paid the most so that you can maybe start learning a new skill or plan for a future freelancing career.
