The Freelancer Chronicle: falling in love with Mondays

Even Spiderman struggled with his powers at first. I don’t own a superhero suit and can’t climb skyscrapers, but freelancing has been a learning curve!

Flylancer Buenos Aires community host Georgina sending some very important emails

For these past twelve months, I’ve worked much harder than I ever did before, and feel more focused, more engaged, more motivated than ever.

I created my own work space in my living room, and spent long hours by myself. I worked weekends and nights, and even missed social events so I could make a deadline. Not to mention the daily stress from working with clients and submitting to crazy deadlines.

Mate and Flylancer — all you need as a freelancer in Buenos Aires

Being your own boss, choosing your own projects, not knowing how much you’re going to earn next month is hard, scary and challenging, but above all, it’s a choice.

I choose to get up early and respect my deadlines. Even though nobody is checking up on me, I work hard to complete my work regardless. This is what motivates me most: every day I remember that I chose to do this, and that how much I earn, how hard I work, is all my responsibility. That kind of power is exhilarating… you could say it’s my drug of choice.

Looking forward: Flylancer Georgina travelling the world
