We’ve already talked about the likes of Ray Kroc, Walt Disney, Alfred Nobel, Ernest Hemmingway and Charles Dickens and how they were some of the historic freelancers who have changed the environment they were born in.
They’ve outdone themselves, grown larger than life, moving and shaking the lives of milions with their inventions, business ideas and vision, through freelancing.
Rather than being about business, wealth or prestige, this is about creating history by adding value to the lives of as many people as possible. Andrew Carnegie had an inborn networking gift, which he used to create a legacy that disregards time through different businesses, dozens of libraries and powerful charities.
The same can be said of Bill Gates, Aaron Montgomery Ward and Sam Walton. To these men, being a freelancer means more than being self-employed. It means training your mind in self-responsibility, discipline and work ethic.
Upon securing these qualities, you’ll be able to take responsibility for increasingly large numbers of human beings.
That’s the greatest gift you can give yourself and mankind. That’s when the legacy begins.
