Freelancers who have trouble taking time off, this one's for you:

If you can't leave your business to its own devices for a week or two without losing money, you don't own a business, you own a job.

Here's the thing folks: taking a vacation doesn't mean you have to lose any work. It is entirely possible to take some time off and still keep your clients happy.

The key is communication, scheduling, and pricing.

If you're planning on taking a vacation, let your clients know ahead of time. This way, they can plan accordingly and won't be blindsided when you're unavailable.

Make sure to schedule your deadlines around your vacation. Plan ahead and be proactive about getting your work done before you leave. This might mean putting in a few extra hours before you go, but trust me, it's worth it.

Your prices (whether you're on vacation or not) should account for how much it would take to hire someone (or a team) to do the job, and then add to that a margin that would sustain your business' needs. This way, when you're off on vacation, you can hire folks to do the job while you're gone and not lose any vital revenue.

How do you take vacations as a freelancer?

When you're just starting out, or trying to attract a new type of customer, you may think you can justify working for free to get your foot in the door. But that simply ain't the case.

I've learned the hard way why it's not only bad for your business, but it's bad for your client's business as well.

Bad for you:
Working for free does nothing for the growth of your business, there's no guarantee that client will ever work with you again regardless of how well you perform. The only person you should work for free for is yourself, invest in your business, not someone else's. Make yourself a portfolio of work for fake clients to demonstrate what you can do.

Bad for them:
Not charging a client means they're not motivated to dedicate the necessary resources to the success of this project (at least not in a timely manner). Also, inevitably, shortcuts will be taken to get to the finish line. Advocate for the success of their project and charge what's required for success.

If you've worked for a client for free in the past, and now they want to hire you again, it's time to have a conversation about payment.

My advice is to be direct and honest with the client.

Say you were happy to do the last gig as a chance to earn their business, but moving forward, you have to charge your usual fee.

Be confident in your worth and don't let anyone convince you otherwise. If the client truly values the solution you're providing, they'll be willing to pay for it.
