    Hey all you Freelancers here!

    What is the one part of being a freelancer do you wish you had help with when you started out? I'm new to this and want to avoid the pitfalls.

    Getting contracts which keeps you busy and brings revenue too?

    That's what I would think off as a first.

    Freelancing is risky. You have a lot of freedom - but sometimes, depending on your situation this can be a bad thing. Ie. not consistent work. I'd recommend building your profiles on these freelancing sites while you are working, and once you have enough feedback/reputation(required to get constant work), then you switch over. Always have backup plans and jobs relatively lined up in the event you need the stability of a 9-5.

    Take as many jobs that you can manage so you are keeping busy take even the small jobs. Always remember to stay humble and to not have the mentality of a certain job is beneath you. A good freelancer is a freelancer that works.
