I used to think it is impossible to work from the comfort of your home and make enough to cater to yourself and your family. My thought pattern changed when I met more than 5 different freelancers who are not just doing well but also doing exploit just by selling their skills. Instantly, I told myself this is why I want. Who wouldn’t like to be his or her own boss and be free from the shackles of a 9-5 job?
Freelancing is fast becoming not just a side hustle but a solid standard of living. At first, the term was used to describe writers working from the comfort of their home, but today, freelancing has become an umbrella term used in describing every other skill or craft that can be done from the comfort of one’s home. The growth of freelancing cannot be denied. In a study carried out by Upwork, it was revealed that in 2018, 56.2 million Americans work as freelancers. This is a 3.7 million increase compared to 52.5 million in 2014.
Today, we have more than 1 billion people (over 75% are from the younger generation) working as freelancers.
Who is a freelancer?
A freelancer is a person working from his or her comfort zone. The freelancer does not necessarily have to report physically in an office. As a freelancer, you are your own boss, you don’t even need an office to start your freelance business. For freelance writers, having a good smartphone, a consistent internet supply, and a working system is enough to get started. If you would like to work as a freelancer, below are some of the things you would enjoy.
5 benefits of Working as a Freelancers
Freedom of client
One of the unique abilities freelancers enjoy is the ability to dictate whom to work with and the number of jobs to take. Freelancers dictate their clients and the number of clients. They set the price and delivery time. This freedom is what makes freelancing a go-to for the younger generation.
Your control of how you want to work
Aside from the freedom to choose the number of clients you want to work with, another freedom freelancers enjoy is the control of their workload. Freelancers determine how they want to schedule their work and the number of tasks they can attend to daily.
Unlike 9-5 jobs, freelancing is very flexible. You choose the time you want to start working and the time to stop. You are not under any office rule controlling how you work and what you deliver.
Nothing surpassed not depending on anyone for either your monthly payment or leave. As a freelancer, you are independent. You have the ability to set where to work and how to work. You can take a break whenever you wish to.
Freelancers are not usually people that put all their eggs in one basket. They explore and in exploring master skills that help them to grow. A freelance writer can learn graphic design as a side hustle and start selling graphic design as a skill. Most freelance writers do not just work as writers, they also do professional editing, and book or product review. As a freelancer, you have the ability to master and sell a variety of skills.
