Angus Nelson talks about the keys to being a successful free agent. He says the three most important strategies are managing your brand, network, and reputation. A free agent has the liberty to work as much or a little as they want, anywhere they want. Also, the hourly fees tend to be higher, but with the advantages, there will be a demand for excellence and the responsibility will be on you to deliver.
You are your own brand and company as a free agent, and that means you have to manage your brand and reputation. And as you become the best known and respected provider in your field, people will pay top dollar for someone they know, like, and trust.
