Being a freelancer already gives us a great deal of challenge, leave alone when it’s holiday season. You might think of shutting off your freelance service during it but also can’t get away from the thoughts of how it can affect your small business. Besides all of the fear about the works and holidays, you can try these tips that we’re about to share. You can enjoy the season while re-energizing to make your annual “new year, new me” resolution finally become true.
Resist the urge to work
We know that most of us freelance workers might enjoy a little bit of relaxation. Although this might be true, some of us can’t help but keep working even when it’s time to take a step back from work. This is what you better do, just remember that holidays like Christmas and New Year is different than other days. Keep in mind that you won’t get a chance like this for another 12 months and that will lesser your intention to work on the days.
In order to resist the urge to work, you have to know that you’re able to prepare yourself before the festive season. We all know that we need to cover a lot of things on holidays. Also, that the time you spend not working will low down your savings which is not good. You can try saving up for your holiday and maximizing your work hours before the day comes. With all the efforts, we’re sure holiday shopping will make a great reliever afterwards.
Let your clients know
We can’t deny that there’s fear that clients may take their project done elsewhere. To avoid this, you need to communicate clearly about your days off to your clients. Especially if you already plan specific days off or if there are projects that needs your priority. You can let clients know by texting them, sending email or even make a clear announcement on social media.
Get rid of all distractions
If you’re going a take break, you might as well make the best out of it. While it might seem difficult to do since you’ll keep thinking about the works waiting for you, it’s still doable. All you need to do is to cut out the network you have related to works temporarily. This can be tough but you’re going to enjoy the holiday peacefully. Just give it a try.
