This was a sticking point for me until I realized how much more I have to offer being ME than the low touch + impersonalization of an agency or big business.
I realized a lot of people WANT to hire humans like us… in fact, they seek us out, because they’re sick to shit of the shenanigans and bureaucratic BS that goes on at the kind of companies you mentioned.
It all came down to perception to me. Once I saw things for what they were that “issue” was irrelevant for me.
Ricardo… you’re soooo much more than the Big 4 – the people who hire you were NOT trying to hire them. Bank on that. Own that. Embrace that. They WANT you because YOU have so much more to offer (even beyond the service itself).
