    It depends on the freelancer's skills, connections, and how they work. A person's lifestyle can have a big impact on their happiness too - for full-time freelancers, it is often difficult to maintain the same level of quality of life as they might have had originally or be able to afford things that are considered necessities for many people. Others derive great satisfaction from being able to do what interests them most with little distractions or obligations outside of what they are working on at any given time. An average day in the life of a freelancer starts with heading out into their local environment looking for anything that has potential to offer some level of success or income.

    Yes. Freelancing affords you the opportunity to learn more about yourself and your interests, get more time for yourself, experiment with new skills, and get paid what you think is fair. There are also many benefits of freelancing including time flexibility, having more control over work-life balance, building an inbound network of colleagues and mentors, a greater sense of freedom to pursue a career path in any direction desired. The disadvantages include not being able to rely on a steady paycheck. However there are ways around this such as negotiating for rates or setting up self-employment accounts or flexing hours/days per week depending on how much work you have coming in at the moment.

    The answer to this question will differ from person to person as it depends on your goals and what makes you happy. As a freelancer, you have the flexibility of setting your own hours and making your own schedule. However, as a freelancer you also have the responsibility of getting new clients and projects, marketing yourself to new prospects, securing contracts with them before deadlines or incurring extra fees for late delivery. Freelancing may not be worth it if you don't enjoy managing these aspects of business ownership. Freelancing is probably best suited for people who are very good at time management and understanding the rhythms of their work flow.

    It sure is if you have the freedom. If you don't, freelancing may be so much freelance grief. Freelancers are their own bosses and have more freedom to take vacations or do the work they enjoy most or work at their own pace, which can ultimately account for freelancing being worth it overall. Freelancers are self-employed entrepreneurs who provide temporary jobs to other people on an hourly basis rather than working full-time for one company that pays them an annual salary.

    Of course it's worth it. Freelancing isn't just something for broke people, out of work teachers, and stay-at-home moms. Freelancing can be a lifestyle change that is desirable for the reasons most people are looking to make changes in their lives - increased personal freedom with being your own boss. Freelancing is not really about running away from responsibilities, but is more about balancing work with other areas of your life so you can enjoy both at will according to personal preference whereas staying on 9am to 5pm grind would usually mean sacrificing some things outside of work even if they may seem trivial nowadays.

    Some people manage to work as freelancers and they absolutely love the freedom that it brings. They report having more time to do things like spend time with family and friends, pursue their hobbies and interests, and they're not tied down to one company with stiff demands for strict deadlines and procedures. Though freelancing is possible, many people who attempt it experience slower progress. They also need a longer-term vision in order to complete projects successfully without all of the resources of a bigger company at their disposal.
