“All earn and no walking…is not the way to earn”-said a fictional character.
It’s everyone’s dream to be different. To work differently. To earn in a way that holds no bar and the timing is yours to handle. For them a term came after the first decade of the 21st century, “Freelancing”
The moment someone hears freelancing, a chilled and relaxed shadow go over their mindset. It’s working for many and working at your own pace after all. But the real questions entail, “Can anyone be a freelancer?”, “Do you need freelancing or a strict organized pace of work?”. The latter query often confuses the outsiders that are completely oblivious to the freelancing concept.
Freelancing means working for many , but not to work laxed. Freelancing comes into picture when an individual’s confidence in certain tasks in instilled enough that he/she is willing to go an extra mile. By that means performing those tasks just for the sake of performing them. Money is an important commodity here sure but, when the activity is given preference over money. Money flows like a river that has the same pace as your hunger to perform.
The activities in freelancing are varied from menial tasks like repairing electronics and data entry to the more creative and artistic approach such as photography and content development. There are no boundaries with regards to work here but neither for the money one can earn.
What makes a better freelancer? A better freelancer is the one who is in it for the thrill of the job. The one whose professionalism and punctuality reflects on his work. Just like a regular job, there are deadlines. However, they are on the soft side. The best freelancers are the one with a professional outlook towards their work and value they put forward to their efforts.
