I'm currently creating an online course to teach creative freelancers how to run a freelance business and am trying to learn what others have had struggles with in their careers.

 

We generally all love the CR3471V3 side of our business, but on the business side of things, what are your biggest pain points/things you hate dealing with?

Sometimes you have to put your "artiste" side on the back burner and maybe do some things you aren't proud of creatively. If the client wants it, you have to give them what they want, up to a point. You can try to explain why something might not be a good design choice for whatever reason, and this is difficult to do without sounding like you're telling them they have bad taste. Then you hope they take your professional advice.

Understand the client’s needs. Be responsive to these needs and creative on demand. Quote. How long would it take to do the job? How much my time worth? And then gathering content, feedback and modifications, especially if working on different projects/clients. Imho, this is as important for a freelance as been as good designer.
