One question I’m asked a lot as a freelancer is if it’s hard working from home. The short answer: yes! I know it’s the “dream” to work from home, and don’t get me wrong, I love it! But working from home comes with a whole new slew of hardships. One of the main ones for me (and many other freelancers I’ve talked to) is staying motivated. Just look at my blog or my business Facebook page. It’s been over a year since I’ve posted anything… yikes! So my new goal is to stay more motivated.
A quick internet search brought about copious articles on staying motivated, but I really liked the ideas in, 10 Tips for Staying Motivated as a Work-at-Home Freelancer from Upwork. In the coming months I’m going to try each of these and report my findings. Let’s see if I can boost my motivation, and maybe in turn boost yours a bit too! Wish me luck!
I’ll end with one of the best quotes I’ve read: People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily. -Zig Ziglar.
