Have you ever wondered why freelancers choose to work for themselves rather than be employed by another company? I mean, the feast or famine cycle isn’t fun. We have to buy our own health insurance (E.X.P.E.N.S.I.V.E.). And if we don’t motivate ourselves to find work, we don’t make any money. So what’s the appeal?
Well, flexibility is key for one thing. For instance, this Wednesday is my husband’s birthday. He doesn’t go into work until the afternoon and I don’t have any immediate deadlines, so we’re going to hang out in the morning for a bit. Maybe get some coffee and doughnuts and take a walk if it’s nice out. Could I do that if I had to report to work at 8 a.m. sharp? Not unless I wanted to call in sick to make it happen. I see a trip to Dunkin Donuts in my future—and time with my husband—and that makes me happy.
