The Pros And Cons Of Going Freelance (Infographics)
Going freelance isn’t a decision you should take lightly. Not only can it be difficult to actually get work, there are a few other downsides you should look at. There are both pros and cons to this, so read on for a couple that could give you a good idea of what to expect:
Pro: Enjoy More Freedom
With a freelance lifestyle, you can enjoy more freedom. You’ll still need to get work done, or you won’t get paid. However, you will be able to nip out when you like, go to the gym, run errands, and not have anybody to answer to.
Con: Staying Motivated
Sometimes, you just don’t feel like getting much done. If this was the case at a regular job, you’d likely still get paid for it. Not when you’re freelance. If you don’t work, you don’t get paid.
Pro: Set Up A Routine You Like
You can set up a routine you like when you’re freelance. If you’re one of those strange people that get their best work done at night time, then you can do that!
Con: Being Alone Most Of The Day
If you’re an extrovert who enjoys being around people, freelancing probably isn’t for you.
Pro: Earn Your Own Money
When you go freelance, you’ll be earning your own money. You won’t be earning money for somebody else and then taking a small cut of it. You’ll still need to take care of things like your tax, but as you’re earning your own money, you shouldn’t feel so bad about it. The infographic below can give you an idea of some of the highest paid freelance jobs.
