If you are contemplating to go on your own path, leave the corporate enslavement and start working freelance, here are some points that may help you finally make that jump.
1. Flexible time. The most popular one is flexible schedule. Working and single parents would love this perk about being a freelancer. But even if you are not one, you could benefit from this as it helps you strike the perfect work-life balance that is fitted for you. You can even work around your non-conventional circadian cycle and start working on your projects at 4pm onwards.
2.Freedom to choose your projects. Finally, you can work on something without feeling like it is work. It’s because you can now choose to pursue passion projects that truly appeal to you and avoid doing things that do are not in line with your interests. Freelance helps you build your own work world where you get to choose your career path.
3.Work within your set of values. Ever encountered a boss or client whose set of values and ethics are entirely different from yours?And then you find yourself trapped knowing you need to work with them and not argue with them? Now that you are working freelance you will be freed from doing things you do not wish to do. And if you are a big family man, now you have more free time to spend with your wife and kids.
4. Save time and money from transportation. No need to wake up early and join the nation’s entire workforce to ride the bus or drive yourself to the office. As a freelancer, office is always just a few steps from you. Not only are you saving a lot of time and money, but hey, you are helping the environment as well.
