If you have read any of my prior articles you know that I am a huge advocate for freelancing. I started freelancing in 2015. I have no regrets! I needed to make money on my own terms. Here are some reasons to freelance in 2018.

  1. You’ll care about what you are doing. Are you content making money to fund someone else’s dream? I know I wasn’t. I really struggled in the corporate world and totally hated it. Do you feel the same? Well, then why keep doing it when you don’t have to? When you are working on your own goals and dreams, your sense of fulfillment becomes much greater.
  2. You can use your own processes for your work. There is no red tape or a bunch of stupid steps to get things done. You just do what you want, how you want. There is a lot to be said for that. There are no more stupid rules on the job.
  3. Financial independence. Yes, freelancing does have some risks, however, there is no cap on what you can earn.
