I interviewed 93 freelancers in 2010. The most important questions I ask them tend to focus on where they are trying to go.
What are your dreams for your business?
What are your dreams for your life?
The most common aspiration I hear is:
“I want to work on bigger projects, team up with these other freelancers. You know — turn it into a real company, like you guys … or something … maybe.”
Which is awesome! Taking freelancing to the next step of building a bigger business is a great goal, and a way cool business model, if you are the right person.
By the time we finish discussing what the end result looks like, you’ll either get more excited (like I did) or you might consider other paths to follow and grow your existing freelance business.
