    Growing as an Independent Freelancer

    When you first get started as an independent freelancer business can be slow and manageable, a few projects here and there to tide you over while you explore additional skill-sets and build up your online presence. However, as you put more time into working independently, you won’t always notice growth and it can be difficult to develop or maintain a business without a justifiable career similar wage.

    In the independent working world, there is a common problem where freelancers quit their fulltime jobs too early in the process of setting up by themselves or do not give themselves enough of a safety savings net should the work quiet down at any point. This leads to a lot of freelancers having to return to work, giving up on their independent dream as they were not able to bring in enough money to pay the bills.

    Your First Year in Business

    It’s not for everyone, but if you’re the right kind of person, starting your own business can be one of the most liberating, exciting experiences of your life. It frees you from having to work for anyone else, and, ideally, means you can pursue your ambitions as far you like without being limited by the structure and hierarchy of another organization.
     
    It can also be extremely challenging: while you don’t have to report to anyone, no one else is responsible for your success or failure. This sort of pressure can weigh heavily on you: risk of running a business is not just financial but to your relationships and peace of mind.

    Help is at hand here with our guide to your first year in the world of business: making a good start will put you in a better position into your second and third years and beyond.

    Reserves

    It can take some time before your business becomes profitable: for a while, you may be paying it before it starts paying you.
     
    It’s wise to make sure you have some savings to cushion you in this initial period of set up before you’ve established a customer base or the key, high spending clients you need to pay the bills. Most advice indicates a year’s worth of savings will be sufficient but think carefully about your own situation before making a decision.

    Storage

    You’re likely going to need some extra space. Whether you’re starting a small retail business from your bedroom or a big salon in the middle of a town, you’ll have products and inventory you need to keep safe.
     
    While it’s possible you have the space in your home or premises, it’s also worth looking into somewhere off-site to keep your extra materials. If you’re looking for a storage facility London has many to offer to suit your needs, and don’t forget to compare quotes to ensure you’re getting the best price.

    Working Smart

    If you’re working from home it can be difficult to draw the line between work and relaxation. Pushing yourself to burnout because you can’t stop working isn’t a healthy way to run a business for a year or longer.
     
    Make sure you set a routine for yourself to ensure you stop when you need to, and relax. This will give you the resilience you need to keep your business running successfully for as long as you want it
