I hope you will forgive spreading seeds of discouragement.
This post is sent from the place of a slight but increasing frustration with a leading freelance portal.
I set up an account on the very popular freelance portal adding some pieces of my work (likely not a PRO-level).
And so the fun began. I am now in the process of struggling to get ANY sort of response even though I only apply for the entry-level jobs with the lowest rate (as I am a beginner myself).
This is a very multi-faceted question, I get that.
It looks like taking off from the ground ZERO is like climbing Nanga Parbat in the winter. Seems unachievable.
I hope it does not come across as weird what I wrote.
I was wondering whether any of you guys was/is in a similar position.
I guess it all comes down to ONE question I started to ask myself more and more often:
* Does it make any sense whatsoever to study Copywriting/ Content Marketing without having any business myself? *
Several months into the process I feel completely lost and just drifting around with no purpose.
Thanks for all insights and enjoy the Sunday!
