    There is a lot of misconception in the public about what freelancing and work-for hire means. The primary difference between working as an employee and being self employed or contracting for pay is that the employer will treat you the same regardless of how much they need your services. If their needs increase, so do yours; if they lose interest, so do you. Positives: flexible hours, only bringing in when qualified to receive job offers, course corrections can be course corrections not major changes when conditions change.

    "Freelancing" is a term used to describe professionals who operate as independent contractors or on some other contractual basis. In general, freelancers are self-employed and may solicit business by bidding for projects from clients, responding to proposals from clients, or some other means of selling their services. Freelance work typically necessitates the person's commitment of time and resources with little or no direct supervision on a daily or weekly basis.

    The term "freelancer" usually refers to someone who offers their skills, expertise, and services on a contract basis for hire. It's typically freelancers--rather than traditional employees--who bid for open projects with the most appropriate bid winning the job. Freelancer is often cited as one of the reasons young Americans are struggling to find full-time jobs (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 31% of employed youth work in some kind of 'alternative' work arrangement) but these numbers don't account for all professionals.

    Work as a freelancer can be adjusting to meet your personal needs, making money online and designing. Work as a freelancer for some people may mean having the opportunity to have enough time to go to school or spend time with family. For others it might be finding work closer to home. It's never too late in life to follow one's passions or find full-time, remunerative work that suits them best. Regardless of how someone chooses running their business this way, there are definite advantages for those who are able-bodied and have skills they can offer for freelance jobs anywhere in the world .

    Freelancing is the agreement between a freelancer and a company for freelance work. Freelance work does not come with your typical benefits like health care, 401(k) matching, life insurance, etc. Once you're off of an hourly or salary contract and on to a per project or monthly setup then those costs and responsibilities quickly revert back to the freelancer (i.e., it's their responsibility now). Contract negotiation is also required as most companies want to limit how many hours you can work in any given month before they throw another project at you.

    Work as a freelancer is knowing it's "casual Friday" every day. Work as a freelancer is when there are no boundaries in your work or in your life. Work can be blog writing, social media management, design, development, system administration-whatever the next project calls for. Work means being most competent at everything you do and tackling difficult projects head-on with gusto because you're not waiting around for someone else to step in at the last minute. It's taking pride in getting shit done on your own terms or asking for help when you need it instead of always trying to go it alone all the time-because trust me, machines will always be less emotional than people.
