How to Become a Freelancer
I want to become a Freelancer for many reasons. My Mom is a Real Estate Broker and my Dad is a Mortgage Broker. They have flexible schedules, they can work remotely (as long as they aren’t visiting with clients) and they have a better work-life balance. I like the idea of being able to eat at home, go for walks on lunch and not having to curse through traffic every morning. These are just a few reasons why freelancing interests me.
Pros and Cons
Being my own boss is a little scary because you no longer have someone else who deals with problems, you have to deal with them yourself. This is not a bad thing, just a nerve-racking problem to deal with at first, but once you learn to deal with problems, the easier it gets.
The other point that I’m nervous about is finding work. You no longer get the work given to you, you have to work to find work – if that makes any sense. I am looking to get in contact with a few people who work in freelance, who may be able to help me out and give me some pointers, because I don’t want to blindly start freelancing before I know what it is all about.
I have done some of my research, but there is still so much more to learn!
Here are a couple of the websites I’ve had a look at that I believe will help any aspiring freelancer:
