Yesterday I wrote about earning income from home by doing freelance work. I was prompted to do a part two to this article after reading today’s email from the DailyWorth.
Side note:DailyWorth is a free daily personal finance email for women. You can sign up for their newsletter here.
The email was titled “Profit From Your Hobby: Earn More with Ramit Sethi“. If you are not familiar with Ramit Sethi, he is the author of the book and website called “I Will Teach You To Be Rich“. Ramit has helped people earn extra income with their hobbies. The email fit perfect with my post about freelance work and I thought would be helpful to anyone interested in earning extra income.
From the DailyWorth
Most of us have potentially profitable talents and hobbies, but we don’t know how to make the leap. Ramit advises: Step 1 is to think of how your skills can solve other people’s problems. Ramit’s developed a framework called the Pay Certainty technique, which helps you determine whether your clients are able and willing to pay for your service. It’s also important to know what not to do, Ramit explains. Despite their hype in conversations about networking, avoid these 4 time-wasters: business cards, Twitter, Facebook, and a website. Ramit will tell you why.
Right now, Ramit is has a free one week course called Earn 1k on the Side. His site says:
Frugality can only take you so far. We’ll show you how you can earn $1,000 on the side with just 5 hours a week. It starts right here. Get a free 81-minute Time Clinic, and learn how to reclaim hours from your day — so you can land YOUR first 3 clients.
I signed up for this and the information he provided looks pretty interesting. I can’t wait to read through it more thoroughly. From what I quickly read, Ramit sends you information that helps you identify what skills you have (that you can be paid for) and how to better manage your time. I definitely think the information he provided is great for anyone wanting to get started with freelance work.
