6 Beatles Songs That Will Teach You How to
Freelance
  • The Beatles. Whether youve known them since the
    Ed Sullivan Show, or have been listening to them
    with your parents for as long as you can
    remember, theres a good chance this incredible
    quartet holds a special place in your heart.
  • Even if the Beatles arent your bag, baby, the
    music you know and love today probably owes a
    solid nod to them. Their influence reaches
    through time and genre, and can be found in the
    most unlikely of bands and musicians but the
    music industry isnt the only group that can
    benefit from their wisdom.
  • John, Paul, George, and Ringo were musical
    revolutionaries, shaping the landscape of their
    industry in ways no one had ever experienced
    before. I dont know about you, but that sounds a
    lot like another niche I know

Freelancers. Were having to constantly review
and change our environments, think quickly and
creatively, and rise above the trends to
build something new and exciting. Youve heard of
Beatlemania, right? Well, the world has
Freelancermania right now, and for good CLICK
TO TWEET According to the Freelancers Union
Freelancing in America report, there are 53
million freelancers working in America right now.
Thats 34 of the workforce and were only
talking about the United States here. In addition
to that 53 million, there are even more
freelancers working across the globe. So, in
honor of this workforce revolution, I think its
high time we created a playlist for freelancers
one comprised solely of songs by one of the most
innovative bands in history. Without further
ado, lets visit six timeless Beatles songs that
will teach you how to freelance.

1. Rain This gem of a tune, released in 1966 as
a B-Side, is a fantastic lesson in perseverance
and a poignant reminder to stay true to your
values and goals, regardless of the circumstances
youre in. Were all familiar with the feast or
famine phrase, and thats because its simply a
freelancing reality. The key to successfully
navigating this cycle can be found in Rain.
John Lennon sings to us about the importance of
staying the course, no matter what your situation
is like at the time.When youre experiencing a
famine, youve got to keep your head down, keep
working, and keep working to find work. When
youre lucky enough to be feasting, make sure you
dont feast too much and deplete your financial
or emotional reserves. Rain or shine, youre
still a freelancer, so stay the course and think
ahead. 2. Come Together Now, if youve heard
this one or paid any attention to the lyrics, you
might raise your eyebrow at my choice of this
seemingly nonsensical Abbey Road hit. Just stay
with me on this, though I swear theres a good
freelance tip among the incoherent phrases and
gobbledygook, as John Lennon himself once
called it.

Come Together is the perfect representation of
the freelance spirit you get resourceful, you
work in the ways you know how with what comes out
of you creatively, and you work together with
other freelancers to make incredible products in
a generous and collaborative community.While
many of the lyrics can be left to your own
interpretation, a few of them state very clearly
that freedom is essential, and that that freedom
can be achieved by banding together. 3. Hello,
Goodbye This song, released in 1967, may not
have a freelancing tip embedded within it, but
poses an incredibly important lesson to any
freelancer, especially one whos just getting
started. While the tune is fun, and the lyrics
catchy, its an upbeat example of the
opportunities available for miscommunication and
confusion in human interaction. A word can have
multiple meanings, and people associate different
feelings to different words, which makes clear
communication utterly essential when interacting
with clients and other freelancers.
5
Be explicit in contracts and clear in your
requests. You dont want a potential client to
get things mixed up especially when youre
talking about hellos and goodbyes. 4. Here
Comes the Sun When discussing a group as dynamic
and powerful as the Beatles, its no surprise to
find that some of their years of collaboration
and production were fraught with tension,
restrictions, and disagreements. During a
particularly tumultuous recording period, George
Harrison retreated to the garden of well-known
musician Eric Clapton, where he felt such relief
that he wrote one his most beloved songs, Here
Comes the Sun. This song and story pose as a
priceless freelance tip take a break when you
need one. The pressures and demands of a
freelancers lifestyle can sap creativity and
toss your morale down the toilet and sometimes
the only solution is a break. Whether its a walk
around the block or a week in Greece, its up to
you to determine what you need and what you can
afford. Either way, youve got to take care of
yourself in order to stay creative and
productive.

5. Dont Let Me Down This 1969 B-side was
written as a plea from John Lennon to Yoko Ono,
begging her not to let him down as they embarked
on their new relationship together. Though
catchy, its a jarring reminder of the trust that
two people place on one another as they build a
relationship. Now, while you might not have a
client desperately singing to you, you will
encounter clients ready to put their full trust
in your expertise. Its important to remember
that they have likely thought long and hard about
deciding to hire you, and that you now have a lot
of responsibility to uphold. Honor your
deadlines and promises, and do your best to
satisfy the clients who have chosen you in this
tumultuous sea of freelance competition. Most of
us know what it feels like to be on the losing
side of a relationship, and the last thing we
want is for our clients to feel that way, too.

6. Got To Get You Into My Life Weve often
compared freelancing to swimming in a massive
ocean only this ocean isnt full of water its
full of other freelancers. If you want to keep
from drowning, its imperative to build your
brand and hone your craft so that you can provide
a service that makes clients fall in love. The
song Got to Get You Into My Life is a cry of
affection and need from Paul McCartneys
soul-inspired lead vocals. In the song, hes
surprised to discover something he never knew he
needed and doesnt want to live without it. How
can you make clients want to sing this to you?
What sets you apart from the crowd? Your brand is
your life-raft in this freelancing ocean, and if
its not bright enough to be seen, youre going
to be floating for a long time. Things are
always open to interpretation. Of course, the
lyrics of these songs are open to interpretation
thats one of the most glorious things about
music

and one of the most glorious things about
freelancing. You might not make sense for one
person to hire, but you could be the perfect fit
for another. The Beatles clearly didnt start
their music careers to teach us how to freelance,
but Id say theyre a prime example of how to be
successful Never get complacent with your work,
dont be afraid to try new things, and never stop
creating. Article source  https//www.approveme.
