I like the video. What he tells is the basis for what every self-employed person should take care of. It is worth a look. I am in a similar position and have been doing my job for more than 20 years. I can tell you one thing that will make your life difficult if you are not one of those people with a strong (inner!) self-confidence: To charge your customers a fair price, fair for you! Because often you find yourself in the situation of having delivered too much if you take your job seriously. If you are lucky, you will have a professional client, for example a larger company. They know the rates and know that they usually can't get better results at a lower price. But dealing with private individuals is sometimes not so easy.
