YOU ARE FREE TO WORK ANYWHERE
Many freelancers become location-independent workers or “digital nomads”. They choose to work wherever they like and change location on a regular basis from hotel rooms, coffee shops, by the pool.
YOU CHOOSE THE PROJECTS YOU WANT TO WORK ON
Freelancers choose their own projects based on their expertise and passion. It is unlikely that a freelancer will ever find a perfect freelance job which is 100% interesting and motivating all the time but the majority of time should involve doing the things the freelancer loves.
YOU CAN EARN MORE THAN YOU DID BEFORE
