BIGGEST CHALLENGES AS A FREELANCER

You are sick with your current job and Boss?
Tired of getting bossing around by others?
You have a unique skill and want to join the freelancing world with the mind set, at least you are your own Boss. This sound like a Wheel of Fortune, huh?

Well...read this before you quit your day job.

1. #FINDING CUSTOMER
This is the number one challenge for all freelancer.
Create a website and wait for calls and emails? Dreams on! You can wait till the kingdom falls!
Advertised your services at portal like freelance.com , parttime.com.my and so on?
Well...good luck! The inquiries received mainly from people who are looking for job and blindly email you without even read to your advertisement.There are phishing inquiries which you need to take extra caution and know what and who you are dealing with. Do not get so excited with all inquiries as if , it is a done deal!

The reality about finding clients as a freelancer is a tough competition unless you have a very outstanding portfolios and ready WOM (word of mouth) testimonial and reference. 

The key to find a freelance work is to keep announcing that you're available for your services and build a strong professional network.

2. #WORK LIFE BALANCE
The most important to maintain this is to have 'SYSTEMS' and 'DISCIPLINE' in task and responsibilities given. It is important to find the right time to work and the right time for your personal time.

The key to have work life balance is TIME MANAGEMENT.

3.#NEGATIVE FEEDBACK AND FUSSY CLIENT
What is your first reaction when received a 'holler' calls from 'angry client'?
Scream back at her/him? Tell him/her to take a hike?
Then only you reflect on what you have done?
As much as you don't deserve to be scream at and feeling unfair, you should understand the client points and why he/she behaving that way.

The key to handle this is, as long as you know you are providing the best services to assist you client, then take it in your stride.

4.#MONEY
You don't have to worry about not making any money if you are working as employee in the company. When you are talking about doing freelancing, its all about your services and clients.
You need to be prepared to make little or no money at times!
There always 'thick face' clients who take off  or a hard bargainer after receiving your services. It is important have some sort of security before starting your service such as advance payment.

The key is to always have a back up funds before start any freelancing job.

For those who still thinking to quit day job and think they can make end meets by freelancing....be mentally prepared or you end up making the wrong turning point of your life and waste of time.

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

How to Buy the Right Bra ?

Warning! This post is all about 'boobies'. If you have an allergy to 'boobies', please do not read this post. Don't blame me for not warning you. Read at your own risk. 😝 I really love shopping. Who doesn't? My most favourite shopping items are clothing and beauty care. There is one thing will give me an eerie and heavy heart if you even give me free shopping money for this item. Bra! For such a small item of clothing, bras are the hardest task for me.  First of all, I have bad experience shop for my own bra a long time ago. My perception, the salesperson who man the bra section mostly aunties who just care about the commission. Unlucky me always met the sales person who will criticize my 'poor boobies'. I have experienced one salesperson scoop up my 'boobies' just to check on my size. WTH! Super rude! I was taken aback at that time. Immediately made a 'U-turn' and never return. I was so puzzled and confused at that time. Why sh
