There’s thousands of video editors who’re better than I am. They use better software, sexier effects, 3-D graphics, they have better lighting and sound…the list goes on.
Technical skill – that’s just one aspect of better.
Better also means taste, a more flexible approach to design. Better also means – and this is the killer combination for any freelancer – enthusiasm plus responsibility.
Excitement to do the work? Rare.
Work-ethic that’ll get the job done on time? Rare.
If you’re enthusiastic and responsible, you’ll get better clients, earn more money, and make better work.
Enthusiasm and responsibility nullifies insecurity. If you’re enthusiastic and responsible, you win.
