@vetriyad absolutely right. I also quit affiliate marketing because i had no patience neither i enjoyed doing it.

Hi friend,

Affiliate marketing is awesome. But we also need patience for it.

Patience = Success

Patience with Hardwork = success

Yes, you are right, but I believe, smart work is 5 times better than hard work.

Smart working means if you can do a work with 10 steps, then why should you do it in 100 steps, however smart working still requires hard work. I mean working all day with smart work is also a hard work.

but you have to be smart for doing smart working

Not really, you just need a strategy for smart work.

Even if you have a skill and a good protfolio, you still need sometime to promote yourself and gig and get customers...

Everything needs TIME

In any business, the main reason for the failure is that they don't have any patience.

10000% correct! Patience indeed is a virtue. Plus consistency. You really need  to focus on your goal

However brother the ones who see early success in freelancing somehow work harder, which get's them more faster results so they don't even need to have patience.

A lot of new freelancers struggle with or worry about the prospect of working directly with clients.

Following are the major reasons why freelancers fail :-

1) Want to earn from 1st day-
At first you need to work for free or at low cost until you build your good portfolio
If you don't have any work to show and you are asking people to pay then it's very hard for you to get clients

2) Don't have enough patience-
Freelancing industry is competitive so you will not get clients very easily
If you are not ready to put efforts and you want fast results then you will surely fail

3) Don't update their skills-
Only basic knowledge is not enough
You have to keep learning and updating your skills

4) Setting too big goal-
Example:- I will earn 10k $ in my first month

5) Trying to master everything-
Having expert in specific skill is important
If you try to learn everything then you will be nowhere

✓ Note these points if you are thinking to start freelancing journey

As a freelancer, you need to make sure your way of thinking is also primed and polished to deal with the challenges of freelancing and that you’re prepared to handle working with clients all on your own.

You might be surprised to learn that the way you think has a greater influence on your success as a freelancer than your current skill level. Learning to think like a freelancer, from adopting a developer mindset to overcoming self-doubt, can mean the difference between quitting after your first setback and learning from it.

And, since most freelancers will tell you, getting everything on document first is the key to a stress-free relationship with your client.

creating your own job security as a freelancer comes in 2 phases.
First, get familiar with the freelance landscape. What expenses can you expect? How much money do you need to make? How much can you charge for your work?

Have a good idea of the logistics, take some time to ensure you don’t get
caught in common pitfalls.

Even if you don’t feel 100% ready, you have to start sometime. Either way it’s time to stop dreaming and start freelancing!

Yes you can do projects even without charging a single dollar at the beginning just to build up your portfolio.
