FLIP Chat & Chill: The Negative Side of Freelancing (and ways to counterattack)

When you are planning to go mountain-climbing, you are probably excited about the amazing sense of accomplishment you would feel once you've reached the top. If you are wise, you're also probably going to prepare yourself for the worst.

Freelancing has a lot of perks:

– decent income
– no traffic
– more savings
– quality time with family
– no office politics
– and more!

These are all good and exciting stuff for the aspiring freelancer, but if you are seriously considering working freelance, you need to be prepared for the negative side of it as well.

There are pros and cons to freelancing and that's the truth. We can't avoid the fact but we can be better prepared to counterattack if we are aware.

Can you name some of the disadvantages of working from home?

We have a few things on our list that are related to the following areas:

– people
– technology
– environment
– self-discipline

We'd love to have you join the discussion and share your own thoughts and personal experiences related to the topic.

  46. Yes I enjoyed this session. 🙂

  47. Yan reason bakit ako napasuko. Sobrang hirap mging working mom lalo pag homebased.

  48. yes mommy here daming work sa bahay.

  49. Guys, trivia, especially to Jason, once a VA somehow come specialize a certain niche, can he/she be already called a “Virtual Professional” or “VP” already? 😉

    1. By definition naman kasi once you start getting regularly paid for your service you’re already considered a professional. But I get what you’re saying. My answer is “yes.”

  50. Regarding rates or coming up with one, is it not that that is where the other value of completing the VAB come im? It’s not like coming in unarmed or equipped for the job. Admittedly, like what Phoenix partly mentioned, there are people who are just lucky to get clients who are generous in giving high rates, while some are not – what is important is knowing that you are coming in equipped/armed – and that starting somewhere (actually at USD5/hr as suggested – having completed VAB – and thus technically ready for any general VA work.

  51. whoaaa nag freeze sakin Y oh Y??? is it my connection?

  52. I love bookkeeping pero ayaw ko na sa corporate talaga. 😞

  53. I started reading blogs and videos about freelancing, kasama na videos ni sir Jason. Yes! I’m not charging 1$ na. haha. I wanted to join VA bootcamp kahit na 5 year VA na ako because marami pa ako hindi alam.

  54. Thank you sir Phoenix for inspiring me.

  55. Yes po kala nila kung ano lng gngawa sa laptop 😞

  56. Internet connections in most part of our country sucks! What internet provider are you guys can recommend?

  57. Is it ok to charge lower rate just to get my first client?

    1. Some advice you don’t Some advice you do. To me it depends on how you sell yourself. I strongly recommend you read up on how to negotiate. Lessen your rate only when you’ve exhausted all your options and you’re getting desperate.

  58. Thank you sir for this conversations…

  59. I am learning a lot. I can relate. 🙂

  60. I always watch jassucess to keep me going on freelancing journey…
    It helps me to boost my confidence ..

  64. Thanks for this invite medyo nabuhayan ako ng loob.

  65. Sir anung work po ang pede applayan if no experience, 11 years sa sales executive, thank you

  66. haha, i did that “unfollow” friends dito sa facebook para lang hindi mkatrigger sa depression ko noong nagkasakit ako at walang income since I couldn’t work at nakaleave kay client. tapos si client walang pakialam na may sakit ako, so no work, no pay talaga. xD

  67. Hello po. I’m planning to resign from my corporate job. I see opportunity in freelancing but is it worth it? Wala po ako ipon. Ang hold ko is ung 75% of vabootcampers na nahahire. Malapit ko na matapos ang course and planning to join hustle challenge by August. I am bookkeeper by profession po. Thank you po sa advice. ☺️
