Well, as statistics clearly show, it is assumed and expected that 40% of America’s workforce will be working as freelancers by 2020. Hence, there is no doubt that freelancing is slowly moving towards becoming an extremely lucrative alternative to full time employment.
There are multiple advantages of freelancing. Firstly, one is not bound to any contract. You can leave your job whenever you want to.
Secondly, you get to work from home and save the time and the money that goes in commuting to office every day. You also get to work in more than one place which increases your chances of earning more money.
While you are freelancing, you can live where you want and travel whenever you want. Freelancers are paid by the hour generally and right now, a freelancing graphic designer
earns around $49 per hour and a photographer earns around $69 per hour. It is definitely a good amount of money.
The number of people who work from home in U.S. is 3.1 million at present. And it is
increasing every year. Freelancing therefore is slowly and steadily becoming
the better and wiser option over full time employment. And it is here to stay.
