Risk and Challenges for Freelancers


It is good to hear “I’m my boss,” but hard to live with it. If you are motivated enough to be your boss, the first step is to enter a freelance world. It is a network mainly run by The Internet, emails, or through contacts. Many freelancers hunt for the projects and try to score them and get paid after the completion. It sounds like an easy and useful lifestyle, right? But you have to face some hard facts if you choose to freelance.

Tough and Risky Decision

Many people think of their homes as a place to eat and sleep. Whether living alone or with family, a freelancer needs a proper space and a quiet environment that is rare in a home. Many people think it is impossible to work from home. Still, many people who were hardworking and steady are now earning well. They are making better than the people working in offices.

Unstable Income

It is not possible to earn a steady and stable income from a freelancer. It all depends on your reputation and how well you communicate with hundreds of employees. One should always search for more work even when he or she is working to stabilize their income. But still, an average freelancer can earn better than waiting and labor jobs.

Work-Life balance

Yes, you might have a massive list of clients, but the price you paid for is the sacrifice of your personal life. Poor work and life balance can lead to unstable incomes and a lack of social life. To make the balance in work life, one should keep work and personal life separate.
