One of the greatest challenges that freelancers experience is figuring out how to deal with the ups and downs of freelancing. Sometimes our income fluctuates from month to month, or even across different seasons. The income of freelancing can fluctuate and you should have a plan to address that.
It’s important to be prepared for the fluctuations of income as a freelancer. It happens, and it’s a very normal part of life as a freelancer.
Ideally you want to get to a point where your monthly income and earnings from freelancing are relatively consistent, but it’s not always possible to make that happen right away or even month to month.
So, if your freelancing income is inconsistent, don’t beat yourself up about it. For professionals, the income of freelancing can change from season to season and even month to month.
In my latest video, I’m sharing my tips on how to deal with the up and down income of freelancing, including:
Tracking your sales as a quarterly goal
Set aside money during the busier times in your freelance business
Plan your vacations around the slow periods
