    1) Do not call yourself a freelancer, you're an entrepreneur and you should only ever refer to yourself as such. 2) Freelancers in Germany earn on average 5906 EUR / 8644 USD / 7470 GBP per month according to the latest global research of online salary aggregator PayScale.com......... Your income will vary depending on what type of work you're getting - from design work to management consulting ............ 4) A word about working hours in Germany ................... In Europe, legislation dictates that workers have at least 30 minutes or more break for lunch ................................ Price for this? 10 hour day instead of 9 ..................... More time for creativity!...........

    In order to work freely in Germany, you need a residence permit for a "highly skilled individual" or a freelance visa. A freelance visa is granted if it can be shown that the applicant has a chance of securing employment within the year and doesn't have any health insurance coverage in their home country. The permission to stay must then be coupled with this proof of readiness to find work during the validity period of the desired residence permit. You will also need proof that your chosen profession is regulated in Germany - simply being registered as an architect would suffice.

    The Freelancing in Germany section of freelancer.me has all the information you need to become self-employed in Germany. Freelancers are becoming more and more common. Whether they switch to part-time or full-time, freelancers can follow their own timetable and work when they want to - or need to, depending on circumstances. All most workers need is an internet connection and a place for their desk (usually at home) to make an extra buck on the side, stop working for somebody else, or create jobs that best fits their skills (and hence talents).

    Do your research to find the best job openings for freelancers in Germany, and apply! If you can't bring yourself to take on a given job or budget, express your boundaries and see if they can be compromised. If it's undue pressure, say no and continue hunting for other work. Once you've found an awesome-sounding offering within your means proceed with caution; before accepting any financial incentives make sure what you're getting into is worth it. You'll want to honor any explicit agreement that's been made verbally or in writing too (but don't feel like you should needlessly agree to things either).
