“The one thing about freelancers, because you do everything yourself, means you are marketing yourself. If you're stuck in a project, most of the time your brain just focuses on what you're doing, and you forget about your networking, your marketing.

In fact, you do a lot of work, sometimes more than people who are working in offices or have regular jobs.”
