13 Breeds Of Freelancer: Are you one?

Check out Freelance Switch’s 13 Breeds Of Freelancer And How To Up Your Game!

I think I fit in the “pushover” category. Oops!

Which one best describes you and your freelancing methods? Can you think of any more”breeds” or definitions?


I'm a wife and mommy first, as well as a social media consultant/manager, editor, and writer. I'm also editor of Musical Reviewer and Houston Theatre Blog.

    I’m the pushover mixed with the no business sense…I think that the two go hand-in-hand.

    I think that there needs to be a Feast or Famine Freelancer. I would fit in there really well.

    Oooh, good suggestion, Tammi!

    I didn’t add it originally (I will, though!), but I think I fit best in the “pushover” definition, and would probably fit into “feast or famine,” too! That’s great thinking! Now we just need to come up with a good definition…

  3. Hi ,

    That was way too cool! Thanks for posting the link. I’m partly a 2 and partly an 11. But not the total sum of either. I usually do think I’m cool (likely I’m not) — but when it comes to writing I can help out clueless clients (see there I go talking like I’m better). But I also listen to others, which does not fit. And I hold back the eye rolling when I work on say, client resumes… so I’m not scaring folks. And as for the “In it for the money” category (#2) — I am. But it’s not because I lost something along the way. It’s because I do always think of writing as my job…not a calling or a magical art form. It pays the bills. And along the way it’s better than dealing with co-workers.

    Hmmm, can we have an “Island of Misfits” category?
