R.I.N: Your Unfair Advantage as a Freelancer

Struggling to land your first (or next) freelance client?

Breaking in can be tough when you don’t have a proven track record or a long list of big wins to share.

So here’s a trick to help you differentiate yourself…

Work in niches you already know.

“The riches are in the niches” is something you hear a lot from successful entrepreneurs…

And it applies to freelancing too.

Positioning yourself as a specialist within a niche is the best way to create an unfair advantage.

And it’s as simple as this:

Your freelance skill(s) + a deep understanding of the people in that niche = specialization.

This works if you’ve got brick and mortar experience…

If it’s something you studied in school…

Or if it’s just a topic you’re really passionate about.

Leverage the assets you’ve already got and you’ll have no trouble getting clients and closing deals.

How to Keep Your Wrists Healthy & Injury-Free

Sitting may not be the new smoking…

But it sure as heck ain’t good for you, either.

In fact, according to Stanford neurobiologist Dr. Andrew Huberman, sitting for 5 hours or more per day can erase the benefits of doing 180 minutes of cardio per week (!!).


But even if you can’t avoid sitting for 5+ hours per day…

You can still develop a daily strength & stretching routine to fight off aches and pains.

Especially when it comes to wrists (aka your moneymakers).

Fortunately, our friends over at GMB have got you covered with this excellent tutorial on how to keep your wrists healthy and injury free.

Do you have a daily fitness routine that works for you?
