So you want to go freelance. I get it, running your own business can offer so much freedom. It can also crash and burn if you don’t have a plan.

Today I talk about these things that you need to have in your plan before you get going:

  • Plan some savings, ideally 6 months
  • Get your partner or spouse on board
  • Choose some billing software to use
  • Choose a project management system that works for you

Even with all of that, stick with it until you can’t possibly do anymore with your time. Then push a bit harder for a few weeks and hand in your notice. It’s always going to be better to have more cash in the bank and more clients waiting.
