Answered by Thibault Lemaitre, digital marketing consultant
Especially when it's early in your freelancing career, it's really tempting to say yes to everyone and anyone.
This happened to me a few times: I ended up chasing potential customers, however, it didn't really pay off and it wasn't a good fit. I should've realize that earlier because that would've prevented me from having to chase overdue payments and working on a project that neither the customer nor myself were really excited about.
Generally speaking, I am the type of person who can do a great job if I am very excited and motivated, however, if I don't have the motivation, my job is going to be very average! And that's not good for anyone: myself or my customers.
