Show Notes: IntrepidEntrepreneur.net/Matt-Inglot

Freelancing can be a tough market. Not only do you have to hustle to build up your client base when you get started, but even when you’re established you can worry that every job is your last. It’s an exhausting field if you’re not organized. 

Matt Inglot of Freelance Transformation is here to give us the Dos and Don’ts of getting started as a freelancer, and to talk about expanding your business once you’ve got things going. He’s getting into sticking to your goals, holding on to your vision, and getting recurring revenue.

Matt’s also sharing his advice on the importance of going to events to meet clients, and how you should decide which events to attend. As Matt says, freelancing is all about relationships.

Matt’s offering some great resources from his company, Freelance Transformation. If you’re even considering freelancing, you’ll want to give this a listen.

The Cliff Notes

  • Stay intentional with your clients and what type of client you want to work with. Will they help you get closer to your goals?
  • Consider your financial and lifestyle requirements in what clients you accept. Know what your criteria are and be comfortable saying no.
  • Make sure you have your business model figured out as a freelancer before you try to branch into having employees.
  • Look for ways to meet people face to face. Go out and meet with people at events and conferences build connections. Be where your prospective clients will be.
  • Follow up on meetings. It’s easy to get busy and forget to send those emails, but they’re so important to building connections.

3 Things New Freelancers Should Do

  1.      Have clarity around the clients and projects you want to take on
  2.      Collect clients and opportunities that you can keep working for and not just one-time jobs.
  3.   Get out of the house and meet with people face to face.

“In freelancing and agenting, relationships are the number one thing.”  - Matt Inglot
