    I am interested in freelancing because I would like to explore my profession. Freelance work allows me the opportunity to explore different facets of my expertise for a variety of companies. Although there are many benefits that freelance work is not typically viewed as traditional full-time jobs. On the other hand, there are also many negatives associated with this type of career path which you may not be aware of until it's too late - do your research before diving head first into the world of work-from-home opportunities or any digital nomad lifestyle! Some people opt out on working far away from home instead choosing remote working arrangements where they can stay connected through video chat and maintain their family relations while still having an accomplished job.

    I'm a digital freelancer and have been since the late seventies. I freelance because I have a good skill set, enjoy working from my own home office, love to work independently and on a flexible hours basis, and I don't need a single thing other than an internet connection to do my job. Freelancing is also how an increasing number of people are earning their living in the modern world. For example, according to this forthcoming book by Tom Kelly-Bootle "The Internet Is Changing Society - 10 Ways" :. "The Internet has never been more intensely gig economy-oriented.. The once forceful trend ..continues unabated." So in essence there's no better time to be freelancing!

    Some freelancers are interested in moving into multiple fields, while others just want to stay in one specific field. I am an early stage medical student who wants the flexibility to take off when classes get intense. I cannot speak for all freelance business owners, but I can speak about myself and my own personal experience with the freelance lifestyle. Professionally speaking, this has allowed me to find work in many different fields without having to become well versed in each profession individually - so far I have gained experience in HR/Recruiting/Communications/Sales/Accounting (studying)/Technical Recruitment (still studying)/Making YouTube Content (for fun).

    I am constantly getting calls asking for consultants who are qualified to do specific jobs. It's difficult to find professionals unless they were (or still are) working in your field, or you happen to know of one off the top of your head. It is possible that someone experienced with software development could be counted on for IT consulting; marketing, editing, design; mechanical engineering; translation services - heck, you name it! Freelancing gives us (professional people) access to what we do best without having to leave our jobs or burn bridges with current employers.

    We wanted to be able to work from anywhere, at anytime. And get paid for it. We no longer have to put up with typical 9-5 office jobs where we get weeks of vacation a year yet never use them because they're filled with stupid errands and mountains of unpaid overtime. People often think freelancing is all about the free time, but the truth is that better flexibility comes at a price-- an open schedule that leaves you wondering if your next shift will ever come or a date night ruined by a missed call from your boss asking you to stay late for one more meeting.

    I enjoy the freedom to choose which projects I work on, the ability to set my own hours, and the freedom to work from home. Beyond that though, freelancing has given me access to benefits like stock options programs, equity (in some cases), more vacation time than full-time employment typically offers, residual income - all of which make me feel secure about retirement one day. All of these are an added bonus that come with freelancing; there is not a singular answer why someone might be interested in it over traditional 9-5 jobs.
