    The answer to this question largely depends on your profession and skills. If you can find gigs in your field, it is a good way to supplement income while building up a niche for yourself. But keep in mind that if freelancing takes too much time, and you don't have other ways of generating steady income, the only decision will be whether you think it's worth all the unpaid hours building up a freelance career for no guaranteed pay offs. In terms of things to consider when deciding whether or not to take on freelance work:. - Is there enough work? - What's allowed by law? - How many hours are required per gig/ day/week?

    People often use the term freelancing or self-employment interchangeably. However, most people who are self-employed don't work for themselves. They hire employees and an accountant to help them run their business so they can focus on running their business instead of getting bogged down in the day to day tasks that come with running a company. Freelancers start off with one client before attracting more through referrals or by marketing their skillset better than others who offer the same type of services/skillsets (freelance writing is one example).

    I would recommend working as freelancer if you want to work on various projects with many different companies. However, there are disadvantages that may occur from not having a 9-5 job such as lack of benefits and low hourly rates. It also depends on what you enjoy doing and how much risk you want to take with starting your own company. I believe it is important to first explore what type of environment is best for you and see if it matches the position before quitting your job so we don't waste time on jobs we won't like or can't handle.

    I've always been an advocate for freelancing as a full-time career, but I know it can be challenging. You need to find where your skills and interests lie and then work with those. If you're really thinking about this, I recommend reading Working As A Freelancer before signing up for anything. It covers both the pros and cons of the whole process and has a ton of questions that you'll want to ask yourself before deciding on anything like accepting contracts or starting your own company so you can avoid some problems later down the road. As part of the article's sign-off, they suggest 3 key phrases to keep in mind when considering freelancing: Trust, Self Respect, Work Balance.

    Of course. Freelancers are not replaceable--they are unique, creative individuals with their own talents to offer the world. Freelancing is not for everyone. Developing your skills as a freelancer requires you to develop self-reliance and independence, be ready for unpredictable conditions, focus on individualized work rather than larger collaborations or teams, make decisions without centralized authority or guidance, work long hours at times because deadlines are very important.. But if you want an independent lifestyle where you can choose your clients according to time zones and other considerations, it's easy enough to become a freelancer! Consider all these aspects before proceeding with any plan of action.

    You can ask yourself these questions before taking the plunge (or not):. -Do I need the money? If you are considering working solely as a freelancer to make ends meet, remember that this is more difficult than it might sound. It's not like making one purchase and then seeing if it works. You need to ensure you will always have work or that your (many) deposits equal enough for stability. Sometimes, even the most successful people end up with less jobs after their initial year due to deadlines slowly outpacing new jobs on offer, so find some other form of stability or insurance for when this happens too often or no longer makes financial sense--it will happen sometimes so be ready!
