    I want to work as a freelancer because I have an MBA degree from Duke University, and have been working as a consultant for 8 years. In those 8 years I found that my best clients came from networking associations and direct referrals instead of just posting on job boards. Furthermore, the pay is much more so it has been worthwhile to invest time in cultivating relationships with others. To be successful at being a freelancer, you need to have great business sense, enjoy solving problems through innovative solutions where there are often no right or wrong answers but rather synergistic solutions, and be good at communicating your thoughts clearly to others.

    Because I'm a freelancer. Some people don't care for it and think it an unreliable job, but honestly, nobody's employment is 100% reliable. If we're getting paid to do the work - which most freelancers are educated to produce high quality content or goods - then I feel like we deserve to be respected as professionals and supported through contractual agreements relating to our work rather than be seen as disposable workers who can be fired anytime without notice with no warning. As employers worldwide continue shifting towards more flexible staffing models with innovative on-demand services, large companies want experts that can quickly step in and out of projects like scalability experts who may best handle regulatory compliance issues.

    As a freelancer, you can focus on what's critically important for your business or project. All of this is especially true when you consider. the opportunity cost of working for someone else, which includes the lost possibilities. of what you could have done had you pursued it independently. Some people. will spend their career learning about new areas and opportunities they might pursue themselves. or with other freelancers. That creates more value in general for everyone involved. It goes without saying that there are no set hours or work conflicts - which is critical to many people who want flexibility to take care of personal commitments outside of work. Freelancing has never been easier because now one stands alongside others who are doing the same thing!

    There are many benefits to working as a freelancer depending on what your needs and goals in life are. For example, if you're looking for a job and would like to set your own hours, then freelancing might be right for you; if you want to learn or develop new skills that employers may not require, then freelance work will allow you the time and more importantly the money required. Freelancers usually receive payment only when they complete their job so there is no risk of an employer pulling out after they have been committed for months leading up with deadlines.

    A marketplace for creative and professional services is the perfect place to be an independent contractor. Freelancers, as a whole, can offer their services to people who want them all over the world. Unlike employers with long-term employees, freelancers offered tasks will only do that task and then move on. The mission statements of Facebook ( Mark Zuckerberg) and Google ( Larry Page) encourage independence; we've seen companies like 37signals take this idea even further by not offering its employees any benefits at all outside of what they themselves pay for like healthcare premiums and 401k savings accounts.

    Frequently, freelance work is not just for those who truly enjoy working on their own, but is pushed upon them due to the state of the economy. Some will be forced into it despite wanting to do something else entirely. So freelancing can lead to a professional degree which you don't really want. The other unfortunate consequence of what's going on with employment in this country is that people are being afraid to take a chance and start a new career because it might not pay off as quickly as what they previously did or because it requires more time from them than their previous obligation(s) allowed for. The result of this problem?
