Mance Rayder’s Freelancer Mantra

The freedom to make my own mistakes is all I ever wanted.
-Mance Rayder & Freelancers Everywhere

Mance Rayder said this in the Game of Thrones season 5 premiere “The Wars to Come”. I’m a little late in posting, because freelancing, but this quote jumped out at me as soon as he said it. Then again later in my husband’s GoT recap

I think this is a new freelancer mantra. Build your own tribe and live your dream!

I mean, why are we freelancing to begin with? What is it we want as entrepreneurs, exactly?

The freedom to make our own choices!

Lifestyle design, build your way to success, slow travel dreams, work-at-home mom who needs flexibility…

And the ability to make your own decisions. Even if that means making a mistake. 

The freedom and growth that comes from making mistakes is missing in so many companies today. And that’s why the Freelancers Union is growing. It’s why (like it or not) the new healthcare system is in place. And it’s why flexibility in the workplace is a hot button issue. 

Freelancers are on the rise, my friends. What happens next in Game of Thrones? In the real world? (We’re taking over. Us and the wildlings. In case you were curious.)

What do you think? Is this your new freelancer mantra?
