#2. DO WHAT YOU LOVE
PERK: I’LL DO WHAT I LOVE
Becoming choosy with projects to work with can be a breeze for some people. You can do things you know you’re good at and love it! But sometimes…
IRK: CLIENTS WILL HAGGLE YOU TO WORK FOR FREE
Remember Dark Knight? In one scene The Joker reminds everyone that ‘If you’re good at something, never do it for free,’ and he’s right! Clients will always prefer free labor and tell freelancers that it’s for the ‘experience’ or ‘exposure.’ Grow a spine, and never yield.

That’s the dream, but only if you’re doing so well. Otherwise…
IRK: WHEN WILL I GET PAID?
Yes. Sometimes clients don’t follow through, and that is what every freelancers are afraid of. Sometimes that’s the benefit of having a day job; you are sure to get paid every 2 weeks for your job.
