As a freelancer, chances are you have multiple clients, maybe anywhere from 4-7. And depending on the services you offer, these clients might all be recurring monthly retainer clients. Which means they need the exact same services month to month, and as long as it’s a good working relationship for both parties, then it lasts! This means once you land the client, it’s a very regular income.
But things DO happen online, maybe you guys aren’t a good fit, the client isn’t right for you or you for them. In this model losing ONE client doesn’t make or break your business because you have MULTIPLE sources of income… multiple clients!
And at this point, you will know HOW to replace that income and find a new client. The important thing is, you aren't starting over from zero... it's just a portion of your total income you are replacing- not the entire thing!
