Como ser freelancer sin morir en el intento. PARTE 1

Ser freelancer fue una de las decisiones más difíciles pero más importantes de mi vida. Una decisión que no se toma a la ligera, al decir sí, estas dispuest@ a sobrellevar todo.

Para mí, fue una de las mejores decisiones. Me ayudó a definir quién era, qué es lo que realmente quería y que estaba dispuesta a hacer por alcanzar mi sueño.

Lo positivo de mis fracasos, es poder contarlos, para ayudar a otras personas, a que empiecen con el pie derecho (y no como yo). Cuando yo empecé, no tenía ni la menor idea de lo que era ser freelance o que yo, con mi forma de trabajar, lo era.

Sobre la marcha fui aprendiendo a la buena pero también a la mala, muchísimas cosas, por ello esta nota será una serie de 2, 3 o más partes (aún no defino cuantas), donde te hablaré sobre esas lecciones que tienes que saber para sobrevivir como freelancer por más de 3 años.

Primero te cuento, yo empecé a freelancear “oficialmente”, por ahí del 2013, estaba cursando el segundo semestre de mi carrera y me ofrecieron trabajar como wedding video editor. Al principio iba al lugar a editar pero después de hacerme de equipo, empecé a hacerlo desde casa, empecé a trabajar para dos empresas más y sin darme cuenta, me volví freelance. Durante estos años,  claro que trabajé en agencias, pero casi en su totalidad mi estilo de vida fue freelancear.

En la empresa que inicié, tenía un pago por boda, pero cuando emigró, descubro algo “Yo puedo ponerle precio a lo que hago, conforme a lo que sé”, también descubrí que sin horarios o sin metas, no llegaría a ningún lado.

1. Eres tu propio jefe. Es lo primero que debes entender.


Para qué tu carrera como freelancer evolucione, tienes que entender qué ahora estás solo, nadie más te dirá qué hacer, en qué horario lo tienes qué hacer, tus deadlines, qué debes planear o cómo puedes atraer más clientes. Aquí todo depende de ti y solamente de ti.

Si no tienes estrategias, si no te organizas, si no pones un orden y eres responsable, puede que logres avanzar pero créeme, llegará un punto en el que te vas a estancar, porque seguirás incurriendo en los mismos “malos” procesos, en los mismos errores.

Tienes que tener siempre presente:

“Si tú mismo no tomas en serio tu trabajo, no esperes que los demás lo hagan”.

2. Tienes que tener un sueldo. Así es, necesitas asignarte un sueldo.


¿Por qué? Bueno, tener una meta de sueldo, te ayudará a saber cuánto trabajo o no, debes tener y hacer por mes.

Esto también te ayuda a saber cuánto y cómo cobrar. La realidad es que nadie más que tú mismo podrá decirte cuanto cobrar, porque tú eres el que sabe cuánto vale tu trabajo.

Puedes guiarte de esta tabla.


¿Y cómo puedes sacar tu sueldo? Aquí te digo un modo:

1)Determina cuánto quieres ganar al año. Se realista pero tampoco pienses en pequeño, ten en cuenta tu vida actual y gastos.

2)Digamos que quieres ganar $100,000 pesos al año, esta cantidad divide un porcentaje entre tu sueldo y tus gastos. Te recomiendo que sea un 80% sueldo y 20% gastos. Los gastos son todos esos pagos que debes hacer para que tu negocio funcione y qué son importantes para poder “sobrevivir”.

3) Ahora, define cuantos meses al año trabajarás, digamos que 11 (lo cual está bien, tienes 1 mes de vacaciones), divide los $100,000 / 11 y te dará $9,090, a esta cantidad agrégale un 5%. Ese 5% lo llamaremos beneficios y como freelancer, tu no tienes un aguinaldo o utilidades fijas, así que tómalas de aquí.

4)Ya sabes qué al mes ganas $9,545. Determina los días qué trabajarás por semana, luego las horas que trabajarás al día, para saber cuántas horas trabajas al mes.

5) Divide tu sueldo mensual ($9,545) / las horas que trabajas al mes (100). El resultado, nuevamente adicionale el 5% de beneficios.

6) Ahora ya sabes cuánto vale tu hora, por tanto cuanto valen tus días, tu semana y tu quincena. Adapta tus servicios, costos y carga de trabajo conforme a esto.

7) Tienes que saber qué esta cantidad es un estándar, para que no disminuyas, a la hora de cotizar, aunque claro, puedes aumentar.

3. Eres una marca personal. Si, te vendes a ti.


En pocas palabras tu empresa, eres tú, así que debes aprender a venderte.

Tu personalidad, tu ropa, tu forma de ser, todo eso te hace diferente ¿De qué manera te van a reconocer? ¿Cuáles son los atributos que te hacen único? Véndelos.

Es normal que como marca personal evoluciones, pero evoluciona para aportar más, para aportar valor.

Tienes que recordar que aquí, si algo sale mal, el que queda mal eres tú. Pon mucha atención en tus procesos de venta y posventa ¿Cómo puedes dar ese plus a tus clientes + proyectos? Además prepárate por si algo sale mal. No sólo debes de tener un plan b o c, sino acabar con todo el abecedario.

4) Necesitas un plan de negocios.

Para algunos esto es la cosa más aburrida o tediosa que incluso te dicen que es cosa del pasado, pero sabes, la vieja escuela rocks!

Como te dije, yo al iniciar no tuve asesoría o alguna guía que me dijera cómo hacer que mi proyecto funcione, lo aprendí conforme el camino y aunque me dio mucha flojera hacer toda la parte administrativa, tuve que hacerlo.

En la escuela cometen el error de mostrarnos todo esto de la misión y visión, como la cosa más de flojera y cotidiana pero no nos dicen que son indispensables porque estas cosas son las que le dan sentido y credibilidad a tu marca.

Además esto del plan de negocios te permite conocer tu mercado, tu competencia, saber cual es tu área de oportunidad, qué necesidades tiene tu cliente y así poder fusionarlo con eso qué amas hacer.

Y no olvidemos que también te ayuda a trazar tus objetivos, generar las estrategias para alcanzarlos, saber tu camino y cuando debes tomar las decisiones indicadas para tu proyecto.

La última lección qué te dejaré por hoy (no quiero que explote tu cabeza) es:

5) El dinero es tu canal. Necesitas sanar tu relación con el dinero porque es importante pero no lo es todo.


Si decidiste ser freelancer es porque estás del otro lado, es decir, eres de ese grupo de personas que desean vivir de lo que aman, entonces ¿Tienes que hacer cosas que odias para tener siempre dinero? La respuesta es no.

Ser freelancer implica hacer muchos sacrificios para poder seguir tu sueño. Habrán días buenos y días malos, pero no entres en pánico en los días malos, no aceptes esos clientes con los que odias trabajar, no aceptes esos proyectos qué odias hacer y no aceptes por dinero, todo aquello que odias, porque, si sigues esta constante, terminaras siendo mucho más infeliz, de lo que eras antes.

Además, te llenarás de tanto proyecto qué odias, qué cuando te lleguen los que amas, no tendrás tiempo para ellos.

El dinero es tu canal para poder crear, pero no es indispensable, hay otras cosas más.


A veces deberás tomar proyectos no por el dinero que te den, si no, por el valor que están representando para ti, tu crecimiento y tu satisfacción personal.

Aunque te hablaré más a fondo de esto, en la siguiente parte de esta serie.

Por ahora aquí terminamos, si te ha gustado, házmelo saber en los comentarios, así mismo, compártelo, para que pueda llegar a más personas, ya que mi meta es poder ayudar a las personas a alcanzar sus metas y creer más en ellos, así mismo, dime si estás iniciando a esto de ser freelance o si ya llevas tiempo en ello.

Deseo que estas lecciones te ayuden a pulir o decidirte por lanzarte a esto del freelanceo, por qué ser freelance no es fácil pero tampoco imposible, todo depende de ti.

¡Muchas gracias por leerme! Hasta la próxima.
