A lot of copywriters are obsessed with having work.
If they don’t have multiple clients and something to write every day they freak out.
Their blood pressure rises and they think it’s the end of the world.
How they feel is entirely determined by whether or not they have work.
I used to be exactly like this.
But here’s what you have to realize:
There’s no such thing as having no clients.
Because you are your #1 client.
What I’m trying to say is that you should always have a side project going on. You need to be working on something that can make you money. Whether that’s doing consulting work, building a businesses or selling courses. If you do this you won’t have to worry about clients ever again. What’s more, your side business might eventually blossom into a full time gig. You should also be continually improving your skills and finding ways to market your business.
If you had done that in the first place you would have avoided the no work problem.
Personally I love not having clients.
It gives me a chance to take a break, relax and not have to deal with the stress they cause.
Yes, if you have bills to pay you probably don’t want to hear this.
But that’s why you need to be confident in your abilities and believe that work will always come.
Otherwise you’ll turn into a nervous wreck.
(And that’s no good for anyone, is it?)
