Freelancing, as the name implies, is one of the freest forms of employment the world has ever known. There is no boss to answer to, no external location to carpool to (unless you wish to lease an outside office) and you get to call all the shots. The best part about freelancing, however, is all the online income. Imagine being able to work anywhere as long as you had a computer and an online connection. You could take your entire family to Maui and work while you watch your children play in the surf, if you have children. Stay at home parents and those who don’t quite like the regiment of the nine-to-five will find the life of a freelancer quite comfortable indeed. And all that online income certainly doesn’t hurt matters. If you want to know what it takes to become a freelancer, put on your pajamas, fire up the coffee pot and strap into your office chair. The quick guide to freelancing is finally here.
