If you were to start out as a freelancer today, wouldn’t you want to be following the career path that generates the highest income?
Many people think that way. And it makes sense, doesn’t it?
Although, 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 another make $150 for the same job somewhere else.
Getting paid well depends on your skill level, experience, and the 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.
