A Collection of Articles Related to Becoming a Freelancer
In this post, you’ll find a selection of hand-picked articles, provided by various authors, to give a solid foundation regarding freelancing, but first, a few brief points to consider.
Freelance work allows you to provide services for other people that outsource their work. As a freelancer, you have a lot of control over your schedule and the projects you want to accept.
The lifestyle of a freelancer allows you to work at times when you are most productive. Naturally, you need to meet deadlines and stay busy so you have a decent and steady income but you have more control over how you work compared to being an employee.
One important point to keep in mind about freelance work is that you must pay your own taxes, your clients pay you for your service without the payroll deductions that would come off your paycheck as an employee.
There are a lot of pros and cons to freelance work, like picking and choosing your clients. If you have a job and your boss is difficult to get along with, you have limited choices as to what you can do about it. As a freelancer, if you have a difficult client to work with you can cut the ties with them and move on with no problems.
One disadvantage, of being a freelancer is finding steady work. Some clients may have a project or two and will contact you if something comes up. So you may be always looking for new clients to keep yourself busy.
Another point is, you can’t control the incoming flow of work. Sometimes you’re overwhelmed because a lot of projects come in at the same time, while other times there is no work available.
