It’s finally summer! Is anyone else feeling like a school kid who’s antsy, distracted, and struggling to focus as the weather improves? (Just me?)
Or, maybe you’re feeling motivated to achieve new freelance writing goals and build your business with higher-paying clients.
Midway through the year is a time where I like to evaluate how my freelance writing business is doing, where I want to go, and what I need to spend more time doing (or not doing) in my business to help me get there.
It’s also a good time to see if I need more downtime and rest so that I’m a better, more creative writer. (Vacations are excellent for resetting and coming up with freelance ideas.)
It wasn’t until writing this blog that I took the time to look at what I’ve been paid so far for freelance assignments, invoices I’m waiting to be paid for, and those I have due to come in by the end of June that I realized I’m on target for getting close to that six-figure income goal again.
The key is to stay on top of your income (invoices out and what’s coming in) so you know how you’re doing and if you need to work harder this summer–or if you can take it easy and enjoy that summer vacation.
This month, I suggest setting micro-goals for summer, as well as long-term business goals for the rest of the year. It’s some of the advice I share with freelance coaching clients. You might also want to dream about 5-year career goals as well. Need inspiration?
Try some of these freelance summer goals.
