7 Reasons to become a Freelancer

Sep 13, 2022

Becoming a freelancer is a bold decision. If you decide to take the leap, believe me, you will make the best decision of your life. In this article, we are going to review diverse reasons why you should become a full-time freelancer.

🌎 Work from anywhere.

From New Delhi to New York, as a freelancer, you could also be a digital nomad working from anywhere with internet access. You don’t have to worry about staying in a single location forever. Forget about boredom and work from wherever you want.

⏳ Own your time.

Forget strict working hours. As a freelancer, you work on your schedule. However, you must be very careful and respectful of the schedule and deadlines you have agreed with your clients to avoid conflicts with them.

💰 Get paid in USD.

As an international freelancer, you can find work that pays in USD, increasing the amount you would earn in your home country. Another advantage of getting paid in USD is that you don't have to worry about the devaluation of your country’s currency. The United States has one of the most solid and robust financial systems in the world.

🎓 Continuous learning opportunities.

Each new project is a new challenge for you. You won't spend every single day for months  doing the same thing. The diversity of projects you have, will translate into opportunities to improve and learn new skills, and being more qualified and experienced to increase your work fees on future projects.

🤑 Keep more of your money.

By working for foreign companies you can decide how much to charge for your services and if you don't have time to take on a new project, you can delegate it, keep a commission and therefore generate an extra income without putting hours into it.

🦄 Variety of projects.

Freelancing is so popular because you can choose the projects you want to work on. It's normal to get tired of doing the same thing in your regular job, but you won't go through this again with freelancing. You will be able to choose the projects you want to work on at that moment. Sounds great, right?

🍸 Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance is the best part of being self-employed. You are free to do as you please, work when you are most productive and take time off when needed.
