Freelancing is a great thing that allows you work at home in a nice room with a nice window and the most important thing close to your family.
However, it is hard to make your way in the market and get a regular income usually needs some time. One important thing to get clients is to be competitive in price, which doesn’t mean that you have to be the cheaper one, but one with the best value for clients’ money possible.
In order to do that, you need to keep your costs limited. This means that you can’t buy every software, tool or product that is in the market to do your work easily.
Before you decide to buy a new thing for your work, specially things that lead to suppose a regular cost, you should take your time to think whether or not you really need that item.
Sometimes, we fall in a kind of purchase enthusiasm and few days after the purchase we understand that the item is not as necessary as we thought. Even if it works well and achieve its purpose, sometimes we just don’t need it to work, and we can save that money for other more important things.
Next time you are about to increase your regular costs, give yourself time to think about it coldly. Most of the purchases can wait for a day or a week in order to take a better decision.
