Winning business is part of the freelance journey, and most of the time potential clients would need a proposal with a breakdown of your services, costs and timeline. If you ever had to create a proposal for the first time you would know it goes something like this:

"I need to create a proposal", "Maybe I can find a template", "hmm, most of these don't really do it for me", "what do I even need on my proposal?", "Is 20 pages too long, or too short?"

The uncertainty comes because most freelancers have never before needed to even know what a proposal is until you need one, the anxiety and frustration can kick in and completely make you feel overwhelmed.
