I recently quit my full time job in the hopes of finding more exciting work and finding myself as a developer. But what I was completely unaware of, was how much I suck at being social (Seriously). I can’t think of anyone I know that is less sociable than I, and this worries me.
To be a good freelancer, you really need social skills. That’s your only way to find work, interacting with people. So I’ve come up with a plan;
- I will force myself everyday to get out and talk to at least 3 business owners about their web presence.
- Of those 3 people, I will (at the least) contact them again, with or without motive to sell anything.
- I will blog every two weeks, regardless of whether or not I have anything to say.
- I will be more socially interactive online. (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
Here’s to better days, and less socially awkward experiences.
