    Freelancing is a great opportunity for people to experience the joys of entrepreneurship. As an entrepreneur, you'll have total control over what types projects you work on and earn more money because there are no supervisors taking their percentage. Additionally, freelancing gives you the chance to keep your mind active by working on things that stimulate your interests. Personally, I find it's much easier to be motivated when I'm passionate about what I'm doing. The same can be said for other freelancers who feel excited or challenged by their work because they've chosen it themselves rather than having someone else choose for them.

    Why do you want to work as a freelancer? Do you enjoy the gamified smart rewards of clients awarding good jobs, quality feedback, and positive reviews? Professionals who are serious about their careers need to nurture relationships with their clients. Making your long distance customer feel respected is just marketing - no different than buying ad impressions on facebook. Survey your community for trust, not just feedback! Having a healthy ratio of steady customers will make leveraging occasional long term projects for stability more feasible. Plus it gives me the flexibility to take care of myself properly - enough time balancing between parenthood and parenting my mother! My free labor is worth taking care of myself time well.

    Excellent question. The decision to work as a freelancer has the potential to double or quadruple your income, so your motivation to reduce your hours or quit your job shouldn't be taken lightly. There are other motivating factors, too - I still think it's awesome that you can come and go as you please without following company rules. But don't forget about the other side of this equation: have you given any thought to what makes a freelance career worth pursuing? You need clients in order for this line of work to pay off financially, not just a big desire for freedom and flexibility. If a steady paycheck is a priority for you then it would be wise advice not to pursue freelance work in its current form.

    Answer: You may not leave (or to the best of your knowledge, you haven't left) your current employer because:

    1. You're scared and unfamiliar with freelancing - well, what's new? You'll get there soon enough as I promise it can be such an empowering experience.
    2. Your company offers a health insurance plan to cover you and/or your family members which you couldn't afford if finances weren't taken care of by someone else.
    3. Perhaps you've been told that freelancers don't earn as much as people who work for an established company and also do the same job because "you're just one person." The truth is that we're all different people just trying to find our

    I have a lot of specific skills that are rare in the labor market, so it's easier for me to find new clients. Since freelancers are not traditionally an apparent segment of the labor force, they're often very technical or niche skill sets that require specific backgrounds or qualifications. Competition for these types of positions are typically less apparent because there are fewer people looking for this type of work compared to someone who's looking to hire someone at their corporate office. For some freelancers, it may also be more financially viable than having a regular 9-5 day job with set hours and predetermined pay every month.

    Freelancing offers a great deal of freedom and flexibility. It can take time to build up a reliable customer base, but there are many beginner freelancers who don't have any problems acquiring steady work from the get-go. This is because business owners realize they may save money in the long run by hiring an independent person to help with spot needs rather than trading around their employees. One big benefit of being a freelancer is that there's no need for yearly reviews or performance reviews - it's just you and your clients, so if they're not happy, you're not working!
