What is the difference between freelancers and entrepreneurs (aka a CEO: Chief Executive Officer)? You might think that there’s really no difference, especially when it comes to small business owners. However, the reality of it is that it’s a major difference.
There are many factors that differentiate these job titles. Let’s begin by exploring each one in further detail…
First of all, freelancers get paid for the work they do. For example, if you’re a freelance copywriter, then you get paid when you work. (Basically, by the hour not a salary.) Entrepreneurs use other people’s money to build a business bigger than themselves. That way, they can get paid even when they are asleep. Freelancers exchange time for money. However, it’s actually much more money than a traditional job.
Now, entrepreneurs depend on systems, automation, and employees that work without their direct involvement. If you can create enough momentum in your business that you’ll still make money, regardless of what you do on a day-to-day basis, then that makes you an entrepreneur.
So, the key question is, “If I take myself out of the equation, does the business still work?” If the answer is “Yes,” you’re an entrepreneur. However, if it’s “No,” you’re a freelancer. Make sense? Which category do you fall into? Either way, help can be necessary to build your clientele and keep them consistent.
