A common dialogue in freelancing became popular since last couples of years, that is, I am my own boss! The peoples who agreed with this statement must have a reason behind it. A traditional job means 9 am to 5 pm office, right? But on the other hand, a freelancer usually doesn’t have to follow such traditional routine for his/her work. If you consider above reason only, then there is a strong logic to accept own boss theory in freelancing. But, most of the cases, there are lots of examples you will find which doesn’t support the own boss theory in freelancing jobs.

Let’s share a real life story with you. About one year ago, I got an invitation of a freelance job interview in Odesk. I had two more ongoing jobs at the same time and for those jobs I had to available in online during work (off course as per client’s instructions). Both of those freelance jobs were low budget jobs and I was searching a fair budget job for me. Anyway, the clients asked me following during job interview.

  • Whether I am able to work as per their standard time or not?
  • Whether I am able to work solely for them or not?
  • Whether I am able to response for work anytime they want?
  • Whether I am able to be online 24 hours or not?

There were some more questions they asked me; however, I just shared above four questions only for your better understanding about freelance jobs. I didn’t agree with them and obviously I was not hired for that job.

Now figure out the fact. If I agreed with them, I couldn’t set my own time frame for work as I had to work as per their schedule. Not only that, I had to response for new work anytime they want then it obviously crushed my personal life as well. Earning money is not an important factor every time; we have personal life as well, right?

Go to any freelance sites in current days, you will find many jobs posting that demands lots of requirements, deadline etc. Sometime I feel disturbed about it. But this is the reality, if someone will give you money for a work then he/she has right to propose his/her own requirements. Lots of competition is taking place in current freelance marketplace, so it is natural that clients will take the opportunity to hire someone as per their requirements.

I am not discouraging new freelancer. There is not much freedom to set own work routine if you want to be a professional freelancer. As example, think about a full time virtual assistant. What do you think? Don’t they have any work schedule? Are they free to set their own work routine? There may not be a 9 to 5 routine, but they also have a work schedule that set by their clients. Well, you may show example of fixed price jobs. For small fixed price jobs, you shouldn’t show it as example. Think about big fixed price project with a minimum deadline, can you manage lots of free time for you?

So, the conclusion is, own boss theory is not applicable for all freelance jobs. If you are an amateur, then you may apply own boss theory, your own work schedule. But for a professional freelancer who is busy with tight work schedule, usually much busier and less freedom than a traditional job holder. Earning money is not easy, either a traditional job or a freelance job, both workers have to follow a work schedule as per employer’s demand.

At present, if you are working internet freelance jobs and you have couples of contract in your hand that means you are not actually free to do your work as your desired time schedule. So, if you are working with couples of clients, you should prepare a flexible work schedule after discussing with your employers so that everybody will be benefited.

If you are stuck with lots of work and failing to maintain deadline, then it might create a negative impact on your internet freelance jobs contracts and feedback as well. Many freelancers do this same mistake while they are in internet freelance jobs. They start too many contracts at a time without a proper work schedule and later, they can’t provide the work to their clients within expected deadline. Consequently, it makes a bad impression among clients that hampers the probability of getting future work or minimizes the chances of long term contract.

So, what is the solution? Being a freelancer in internet freelance jobs, you must be agreed that maintaining a good relationship with your current client will make the door open for future success. So, it’s obvious that you have to make your clients happy through your work. This not only depends on your work quality but also depends on your communication, commitment and deadline. Finishing the task within deadline is the most important thing among all.

So, what to do if you want to finish your internet freelance jobs within deadline? I hope you already got my point. You must have a flexible work schedule. Don’t create it by own. Discuss with your employers, make the best fit schedule for each task and continue your internet freelance jobs. It will help you to maintain your online freelance jobs hassle free and build a good reputation with your clients. The main important thing is you don’t have to miss the deadline. That means, your clients will not be dissatisfied and you will have good feedback after ending the contract.

For this reason, competition in this sector mounting high and higher. However, in spite of having lots of challenges many freelancers are getting success in online freelance jobs.

What are the factors behind their success in internet freelance jobs? What they have, but you don’t have? Being a freelancer, I started my career three years ago. Till to date, I am enjoying this career and looking forward doing something better than earlier. I have never been disappointed and frustrated if I missed any new contract or any ongoing contract ended. I said myself why should I disappoint. This sector is a biggie now a day, and you have jobs somewhere. Just find it and do it. Never lose your hope!

My experience says if you are thinking to start internet freelance jobs then first you should be determined about it. You decide whether you will take it as your first income or secondary income sources. The second thing is, enjoy your work, whatever it is. The third thing is treating any task seriously. The fourth thing maintain professionalism in your work and provide your work within deadline. The final thing is keeping your hope when you have no work in your hand. Bid again and again, work is available in somewhere. You just continue your search and try to get it. Success will be waiting for you, either today or tomorrow.
