Hi Răzvan. Thank you for sharing your insights.

One important aspect that I would like to point out is the utilization rate. Being a freelancer for many years, my utilization rate is ~60%. I don't have clients all the time and finding clients while dealing with other administrative work also takes up a good chunk of my time.

One important thing I have learned it is to streamline your administrative work in order to spend as much as possible with your clients.

I prefer to use AskFora when freelancing because it does a great job with handling the administrative aspect of freelancing that helps avoid overhead that is unnecessary so that I may spend more time with more of my clients to be focused and innovative
