So Do I Need to learn new skills

What if a client asks  you to create a gif animation and you don’t have the skill to do it. Will you decline the project offer ?

Hold on… pause for a minute…..

What if…. You knew how to create  gif animations, and you accepted the offer to do the design project.  This new skill could be more profitable too.

As a freelancer learning new skills have helped me out a lot. I have learned to create architectural designs (yes  I do have a diploma in Interior design),  video and audio editing, small 3d animations are some of them.

I know you might wonder how I learn new skills plus do you have time.

As a freelancer, there are times  when you have dry or less work periods. I use that time to learn new skills. Apart from that I have my clients who inquire, whether I can do such & such. So this gives me an idea to try it out, and some succeed and some are out of my scope.

I like to experiment and that’s  one way I learn new skills. I also try to recreate what I see as a way of learning. A lot of good tutorials can be found on youtube that I refer to. I also read books and practice them when I have  time.

As a conclusion learning a new skill is fun and this will helps you to grow your freelance career.  Let me know what you think in the comments…
