Why Freelancing is better than Job?
- Freedom of work and freedom of time. Most important factor is that freelancers are free to do anything they like to do. Some people feel as they are more productive in evening than in the morning, and so they work according to their own routine and are not answerable to anyone if they don’t come to work some day. So freedom in freelancing is what makes it a dream work.
- It requires Confidence, Skills and Expertise. If you have got it, that’s all you need in freelancing and you will be making more money in a week than your 9 to 5 job. Because freelancing is more about doing projects.
- Freelancers are living their own life and dreams. It is commonly said that if you will not get up and start working to make your dreams come true, somebody will hire you to complete their dreams.

- As said before, freelancing is a type of business. And as per my own personal experience I’ve always been earning x3 of whatever my age page are making from their regular jobs. That’s because freelancing gives you power to do whatever you want to do and there are no restrictions or boundaries to it. However in job, even you work for 12 – 15 hours a day, you are going to get same salary at the end.
- Freelancers are free to do work anytime and take off anytime depending on their own will and needs. The good thing is, they don’t have to request someone first and wait for the approval from someone, which more looks like doing a robot job as a slave from 9 to 5.
- Freelancers can do multiple business at a time. On one side where their is no guarantee nor any predefined digits of monthly income they will get at the end of each month, there is surely a guarantee that you will get based on your individual performance and abilities.
