    Yes. The rise of freelance careers is a great thing for those who like to work by themselves and outside the traditional office. It offers one relief from the drudgery and day-to-day monotony that often overwhelms people trapped by their 9 to 5 lifestyle. There are many other benefits, too, such as living wherever you want, being your own boss with 100% control over what you do with your time, freedom from an outdated dress code, making more money in many cases, less stress because there are no supervisors or deadlines or meetings or tedious procedures to follow. The list goes on and on.

    Working as a freelancer does not come without its own set of complications. Freelancing means you're self-employed and to all intents and purposes, the boss and your employees. As such, to enjoy this state of affairs, one first "must know what they're doing". Nonetheless, working as a freelancers may be perfect for those who wish to do things their way because it affords them that flexibility. So long as you can keep up with work whilst maintaining any other commitments (e.g., family) then working as a freelance worker might be right for you.

    Freelance jobs are great when you have a successful portfolio of work and can demonstrate your skill both with a company and to potential clients. Having a long-term goal when you go into freelance is important because when times get tough, it's easy to veer off course from what you really want. In the meantime though - people who want to earn some money on the side often take up freelance jobs - especially if they're in a position where they need quick cash for something, or if they're about to graduate from college.

    One of the downsides is that you are not guaranteed any work. You are self-employed, so if your clients cancel, there's nothing to do. Your time can be wasted for lack of clients. One advantage is that you get to determine your own schedule and input--you will ultimately control how much or little you want to work by adjusting your rates and what type of work you offer, as well as taking certain precautions such as working with stretch goals (i.e., setting yourself an end date for a project).

    I can't speak for anyone but myself, but freelance jobs are good for me. For the past two years, I've worked remote on software projects with clients both in North America and Europe. Contract positions provide flexible schedules with time to work on my business ventures or personal interests in between client engagements. I enjoy having the opportunity to explore new technologies and gigs while still getting paid. Some people might find this lifestyle too isolating, but I like never knowing what's coming next (aka "scope creep"), waking up every day unsure of which email will initiate an assignment or alleviate my workload.

    It depends on how well you do it. Not everyone can successfully freelance, but if you can find your niche and keep up with low competition work, then it's a great way to make money. Freelancing is like any other career, where one must practice to become excellent at something they enjoy doing. You could compare freelancing to playing the violin; success will come not from following instructions or copying off other people's work (i.e., plagiarism) but by practicing regularly and providing top-quality performances according to the specific needs of the situation.
