Figure-out-ability

The most underrated skill of a freelancer: Figure-out-ability

It’s the willingness and determination to figure out how to make something work, even when your current skillset, limitations, or project constraints say otherwise. When others get fed up and quit (or hire someone else to sort it out), you keep going — exploring every possibility, learning rapidly to overcome any obstacle.

I’d even argue that this single skill outweighs multiple others combined. You might be an alright web designer and an okay copywriter, but if you’re an excellent figure-outer, there’s no limit to what you can accomplish!

The internet is a vast open sea, and it rewards those who are brave enough to keep the sails set high amidst unseen perils. You don’t have to know everything, just how to find what you need to continue onward.
