Here are a few reasons why it’s great to be a freelancer:
You don’t have to work 9-5. Freelancing means you can figure out your own work routine, pick and choose what tasks you work on, and tackle projects in a way that makes sense to you. Being a freelancer simply means more flexibility.
Flexible Workplaces: You can work from home, a coffee shop, or a co-working space–if a noise office or store isn’t the right place to work for you, you can just choose somewhere else.
Freelancers can pick or choose the projects that appeal to them. If a project doesn’t seem like something you would like to work on, or a client does not feel like the right fit, you can simply go elsewhere.
Although freelancers pay more in taxes, they also get some great tax benefits. As long as you keep careful records, expenses such as computers and phones used for work, dedicated office space in your apartment, travel, and meals with clients and potential clients can all be deducted from your taxes.
