If you want nothing more than to supercharge your career, then you’ve come to the right place. There are many ways you can boost up your freelancing career. But we have to ask, do these activities usually include fun? We didn’t think so.
Believe it or not, but some entertaining activities improve your freelance superpowers. That’s right, your superpowers.
For your career to grow, it’s okay to have some fun every once in a while. Enjoy the right amount of entertainment, and your freelancing work will skyrocket.
If you’re wondering what type of fun you should do to boost your career, check out three fun activities below!
1. Attend Conferences
Attending different conferences is an excellent way to improve your skillset. Plus, you have the opportunity to network with people and make new connections.
When heading to a conference, make your life easier by using apps made for freelancers. It’ll make managing your business while on the go a lot easier.
Consider attending a conference focused on social media. Going to a conference that focuses on social media makes it so you can add more value to your clients! Plus, if you love social media, it’ll be a blast for you to learn.
A client might have hired you for design work, but you’d like to help with social media. Going to a conference focused on social media can educate you and help you reach goals.
If you decide to offer social media services, you’ll have a great skillset. And that’s all because you took the time to soak up knowledge at some fun conferences.
It’ll impress clients when you say that you attend conferences to learn new skills!
We also wanted to point out something. If you’re unable to attend a conference in person, there are plenty of online conferences. You can still “mingle” with people and learn, even if you can’t be there in person.
2. Go on Vacation
Going on a trip, aka a vacation, definitely falls into the “fun” category. But you might be wondering what it has to do with supercharging your career!
It has quite a bit to do with it, actually. Every successful person needs to get away every once in a while.
If you’re a hard worker who keeps burning the midnight oil, eventually, you’ll need to take a break.
Taking a day off every once in a while is nice. But wouldn’t going on vacation be even better?!
You’d be surprised how many successful freelancers go on frequent vacations. And no, it’s not only because they make more money. They also go on trips because it helps them stay revitalized and inspired!
Taking time away gives you time to clear your head and dream up great things. By the time you return from your getaway, you’ll have new business ideas.
Your freelance career could skyrocket all because you took some much-needed time away!
3. Work for Someone Who Inspires You
As a freelancer, you have the option to select your clients with care. Initially, you may accept any job to get your feet wet. But after building up a successful freelance business, you can be more selective.
At that point, make a point to work for someone who inspires you! A business that encourages you to grow and improve your skillset is a good client to have.
Look for a company who is there for its contract workers and wants to improve their lives. They should be eager to listen to your ideas and apply them to their business model.
A self-serving company that is only looking out for number one isn’t going to make your life better. And, they’ll have a hard time growing. Why is that? Because they’re not willing to receive input from anyone but themselves!
Always try to work with someone who wants to help you improve yourself. Give them your 100% effort, and they should be more than happy to be there for you as well.
Work for companies like that, and you’ll improve your career in more ways than you can count.
So there you have it. You can have fun while still being a successful freelancer!
It’s all about balance. So if you’re not having a great time working as of late, do something to change that.
Take a vacation. Attend a conference. And find clients who inspire you!
Doing all this may not happen overnight. But once you get into the habit of supercharging your career, anything is possible.
Never give up on your dreams because you can transform your career into something extraordinary. You deserve to stay true to yourself and embrace your freelance superpowers!
