5 Reasons Why I Became a Freelancer?

Posted on at


So I have been freelancing for almost 4 years now, and it's been really great. Freelancing has become very common and many people have adopted it as their full time income source. You should try it too. Let me tell why I chose freelancing.

1) No Strict Routine

When you freelance, you don't have to follow any schedule or leave your bed early in the morning. You just need to have a laptop and an Internet connection to work. You can work from anywhere be it your home, cafe or a library.

2) No Boundaries

Let's suppose today is a national holiday in my country and everyone is busy in it. So what? I can always work for people from other countries. As a freelancer, you can work for anyone around the globe. It dramatically widens your employment and income circle. In my career, I have worked for people from every habitable continent.  Nobody can stop me from earning :)

3) Time Freedom

You don't have to work at any specific time of the day. You can work and go on vacations anytime. Yes!, no need to wait for any special occasion or a Sunday holiday. You are free :)

4) No Formalities to Fulfill

No need to follow any dress code or show fake courtesy. Just be your self and do your work. No body will fine you for coming late or show his/her dislike regarding your haircut.

5) No Experience/Degree Required

If you want to start freelancing, you don't need to have any past experience or provide any degree from some well known institute. You can start right away, I mean right now :)

Which platform you should use?

Well I personally use Fiverr(I am level 2 seller there) and PeoplePerHour. There are many others too such as UpWork and Guru. Just join whatever platform you like. But do remember that Fiverr receives highest traffic among all others.
