    A freelancer can make between $10 per hour to up to $150,000 per year. The average wages are usually in the range of tens of thousands of dollars per year. A 2010 study by Upwork and Freelancers Union found that 36% of U.S.-based freelancers have college degrees, 21% have graduate degrees, 86% are white-collar workers or self-employed professionals, 79% classified themselves as introverts compared with only 37% who classified themselves as extroverts.

    Successful freelancers earn a median of a million a year. However, that figure can be misleading because it includes both very successful contractors and absolute failures. If you understand how to sell yourself and your services-to generate the right amount of demand for what you do at the prices you want to charge, while spending little time managing your business-you should expect (on average) to make about $0.50 per hour, or $25 per day (assuming 10 hours in a workday). That means that if construction engineer Pete is working 10 hours on his own business today, he should end up making about $250 this week alone !

    Freelancers who work full-time report net monthly income of $2000 to $3500 after deductions for taxes, insurance, car expenses, etc. Given the relatively basic lifestyle commitments of this group - no mortgage or childcare costs - that may seem like a pretty good living. But it's essential to recognize that these are average numbers which mask huge variations. To illustrate how much things vary among freelancers let' assume two people each making $2,000 per month take many steps different in terms of lifestyle commitments and spend different proportions on the categories below (e.g., one has high home office expenses but low child care costs).

    Yes, that is a good question! Rates vary from person to person and the type of work that is being done. A few things to consider are how many projects you take on at once and what your rates are for each one. If you accept a certain project with a low hourly pay rate while already working on an hourly based freelance gig with another client you might end up sacrificing some money in order to make sure the other client's project is finished before its deadline. The types of jobs can also mean more or less than typical rates--doing something like designing websites means $150-250 per hour, while just proofreading typically nets $0.02-$0.

    A freelancer's salary is determined by performance, experience and location. It also depends on the industry they are in. The average salary for a freelance worker varies depending on what type of work they do, how much time/energy/money they put into networking, their level of experience in the field, etc. As with any profession though the more you do the better you become (experience) and often with that comes higher pay in companies or freelance organizations that offer competitive salaries for employees with your skills.

    Freelancers make a lot of money! In general, freelancers make 30% more income after expenses than they would as full time employees. Though this varies a lot based on the profession and location- for example, someone who does graphic design can feasibly make up to twice as much as an advertising copywriter in New York City. Freelancing is the way of the future, so if you're looking for a chance to 'make it big', then go freelance! You'll never have to worry about being laid off again! ;).
