|I started working as freelancer since Sep 2014, the new year is here and I'm not in the situation I was hoping to be. I leave my day job to get better income but more important to get more interesting projects to work with, I always felt that I was stuck in the same tasks the same tech and with no opportunity to get any new stuff to do, and been more real with no opportunity to have a career, there was not other job position to take, so I resign and start doing freelancing and It starts really well, I have to make efforts speaking english and sending detailed reports, but all went well, good ratings, good feedback, great clients, months later I'm not doing the projects I was expecting, I feel the same that in my past day job that I'm stuck in the 40$us 100$us kind of projects, with no new things to do and I want to do more, I know I'm starting and I need reputation and maybe be more patient, but is hard to see myself in a better situation in the future.|
My current work history is great, I have only five stars ratings, but my clients just contact me to small short projects, I want it to change, I tried to apply for different projects, and start learning new tools, I'm really getting into Ansible and Docker, but I'm getting no responses and I'm not sure what clients are looking for.
HN, how would you deal with this situation? What can I do to get better opportunities?
This is my first post but I search into HN to look for experiences, I read great advices here I can say I had been motivated to leave my work because of some comments.
Maybe I'm anxious and need to be patient, but I would love get some advices to get a new 2015 start, and be proactive about the things I can change and learn to be in the position I want so much.
Love and Happy Reyes Magos for all.
