As a freelancer or sole proprietor, how do you decide when to start a new project? I’m not talking about taking on client projects… I’m referring to ventures, product or application ideas that you have and think would make a good business. Are you the kind of person who gets an idea in their head one day and jumps in head first the next? Or, do you need to have a plan in place with potential return on investment before you pick up your mouse? Until recently, I would have said that I fell in between those two extremes landing a bit closer to needing a plan than jumping in. However, over the last several months I have come to the conclusion that I fall smack dab in the first group and have determined that that’s not necessarily a good thing.
