    PROS:

    Flexible working hours.

    More Earning.

    Being your own boss.

    Self-Motivation and self-learning

    Work anywhere, anytime


    CONS:

    Freelancing is like starting your own business.

    If not self-motivated, self-learner, not enough skills, and no dedication, then freelancing is not for you.

    There are many reasons why I like freelancing, but I would like to mention three main ones 

    1. No imposed work schedules.

    You work when you want and as long as you want. Some freelancers even manage to arrange their schedule so that they can work no more than four hours a day and still earn a lot. Your boss won't ask you to stay after work or go out on Saturday, and you don't have to get up every day for the start of the office day.

    2. you are not tied to the office.

    If you want - to work from home, and you want - from a coffee shop or a co-working space. Or anywhere in the world. Travel has never been easier or more accessible than freelancing. You don't have to wait for weekends and coordinate vacation dates with your colleagues - you just take it and go. The main thing is not to forget that if you are a freelancer, you should always have enough time for work, even while traveling.

    You are constantly evolving.

    To be in demand on the freelance market, you need to get better and more professional every day, because high competition spares no one. That means different courses, training, books and now will be your best friends. And if someone convinces you that constant development is a minus, not a plus, then most likely, freelancing just isn't for them.

    I'm currently working in a corporate setting but I used to be a freelancer. What I liked is being able to control more of my time as well as not having to wake early and go to the office.
