There are many perks in freelancing. Probably the best among them is that freelancers work in their preferred time and days of the week. They do not have to worry about waking up so early in the morning or missing out from their children’s Parent Teacher Association meetings. They can start their projects at noon and continue until the wee hours of the night while munching on a healthy snack cooked from their own kitchen.
Most freelancers work from home. And since they do not have to report to the corporate world, they can just wear comfortable clothes while thinking in front of their computers. Dry cleaning and wardrobe expenses are significantly reduced. They can focus on getting the job done instead of what they will wear for a presentation in front of a bunch of executives.
Freelancers save a lot on transportation money. Due to the fact that they do not have to leave their houses, they do not spend a huge chunk out of their savings for gas or train tickets. Morning traffic jams do not concern them. The rush hour does not affect them. They can sit back and need not worry about long commutes that tire the employees in a corporate setting every single shift.
When it comes to compensation, freelancers can dictate how much their output costs. Unlike regular employees who have fixed salaries, freelancers can bargain with clients on how much a project would be. The more intricate the details for a project are, the higher price freelancers can ask. The more experienced the freelancer, the higher compensation he can demand. The amount of money that a freelancer can earn in a month is never fixed. It can increase depending on the professional abilities, sample portfolio, relevant job experiences and communications skills of a freelancer.
