Benefits & Advantages of Freelancing
- Flexibility of Hours: Working freelancing jobs from home or from a remote workplace as a freelancer allows you to dictate your own hours and work at times most convenient to you. Freelancers with young children, for instance, can work after the children are sleeping; freelancers with traditional employment or part-time jobs can perform their freelance work around their regular work hours. You can work when you are most productive or load up on work now to have some “me” time later.
- Workload Control: As a freelance worker, you can control your workload. While client demands can, at times, dictate your schedule, you can turn away work during busy times or accept more work during lean times.
- Freedom: As a freelancer, you can choose the clients you wish to work with and the projects on which you work, particularly if you have an excess of work. You can drop high maintenance or slow-paying clients or turn down undesirable projects if you desire.
- Work-Life Balance: Because they work from home, freelancers often have a better work-life balance. You can spend more time with your children or the dog and steal moments to relax and do the things you love.
