How To Find Motivation To Keep Working When You Don’t Feel Like It

motivation-work-burnout-freelance

I feel lucky to be able to say that I love my work and truly mean it. Not many people can say that about the field of their work or their job because most people find their day jobs to be boring, demeaning, and exhausting.

I know that because I went through several 9-to-5 jobs before starting out as a freelance writer. I worked at two local advertising agencies as the lead graphic designer and I hated every minute I spent working at those places. I didn’t even last more than 6 months at those jobs.

Writing has always been my passion. I started writing silly short stories and poems ever since I was about 12 years old, that’s way before taking my first freelance job at a local tech magazine. You can probably imagine how big of a deal it was for me when I discovered that I could actually write for a living.

When registering with a freelancing site like UpWork or Freelancer, the first thing the site asks you is to complete your profile and take it from me, you should take their advice more seriously if you care about scoring more clients.

Before You Start Your Freelancing Career, Start Guest Blogging

Before I started taking freelance writing work online, I spent about a year working on my own blog, freshinfos.com, creating content regularly on latest Apple releases, social media, and everything related to technology.  By the time I registered with a freelancing site, I was already a seasoned writer with quite a lot of experience and knowledge on everything that’s going around the web.

This awesome qualification helped me land almost every job (3 out of 4) that I pitched to on Elance. Some contractors even contacted me personally via email to hire me for work.  Just mentioning my background and my website on the profile was enough to get invited to a whole lot of jobs every week.
