Freelancing is a dream opportunity for many: what with the flexible hours, good pay rates and the ability to plan your day as you choose without being bossed around. But freelancing also comes with its own tough challenges. When you talk about freelancing in most cases the first thing that springs up in one’s head is journalism, writing kinda related work. But you got it wrong freelancing is applicable in all fields and professions all you need to do is think outside the box. But for you to think outside the box you sure need to be inside the box in the first place. Freelancing can create a rewarding and lucrative career right from the comfort of your home. The only problem is it can lead to starvation (famine) or expansive wealth but all this depends on you as an individual and your determination to succeed at whatever you are doing. With the current economic crunch most companies prefer using freelancers to permanent staff because of the less expenses they have to incur in their day to day running of their businesses.
With its unmatched flexibility and the sheer bliss of working in your jeans and t-shirt or even a kikoi I wonder who wouldn’t be willing to try it out. Unfortunately most people especially the youth tend to be conservative and would prefer to have an 8-5 job instead of working it on their own. One thing they forget is while they spend loads and loads of cash shopping for office suits/office wear a freelancer is saving that money for better things. Freelancing gives you the ability to save on a number of things ranging from transport costs to food costs. But for you to succeed and make a career out of freelancing you need to put your priorities and strategies right and be good at saving.
There are soo many advantages to freelancing. Freelancing brings about the pleasure of being your own boss and creating your own schedule, the flexibility to go on holiday and work at the beach, being paid for the work done, earning bonuses for work superbly done and many more that I don’t want to fill a page writing about them. So whether you are a lawyer, an accountant, a lecturer, a transcriptionist or whatever profession you’ve got under your belt don’t tie yourself to a boring routine kinda job go out and experience the freedom and bliss of working and earning money and still feel good about it. Remember the 3 C’s of life: choices, chances and changes ~ You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.
