Find out how a seemingly innocent thought I had while planning my wedding made me realize that freelancing is a “superpower” compared to working a nine-to-five job.
My fiancé Melody and I are starting to plan our wedding for next fall.
And after talking with five different wedding planners over the last few weeks, we emailed our top pick yesterday to iron out some final details before we sign with her.
Plus a few months ago, we also came up with our budget and put that money aside in our respective savings accounts.
But at the same time, we also said if we really wanted to do something special, we could go over our budget if needed.
See, we both run our own businesses. And I remember thinking to myself that if I really wanted something for the wedding…
“I can just go out and make more money.”
Now that’s a seemingly innocent phrase. And when it first popped up in my mind, I didn’t think much of it at first.
But then something strange happened.
Because even though I had this idea without a second thought, I realized…
Saying “I Can Just Go Out And Make More Money” Is NOT The Reality For Most People
Most people get a paycheck for the same amount every two weeks.
Then maybe once a year, they’ll get a raise for a few percent.
Or if they’re lucky, a promotion where they get a raise for 10% or more.
But then — for the entire next year or more — their income remains stuck at the same amount.
Which means every time they spend money on something, it shrinks the amount of money they have available to pay for anything else.
And I’m sure that plays a big role in why so many people approach life with a scarcity mindset.
Since money is scarce for them. They only get a fixed amount each year. And there’s effectively nothing they can do to change it.
That’s when it hit me…
Being Able To Say “I Can Just Go Out And Make More Money” Is Actually A Superpower
And it’s yet another way freelancing gives you more freedom than working a nine-to-five job.
So even though it’s not always easy — especially when you’re just starting out — this is one more example showing that the rewards that come from freelancing are absolutely worth it in the end.
