Being a freelance writer can be a fun and challenging career. Although freelancing takes a lot of hard work and dedication there are also a lot of benefits to being a freelance writer.
Be Your Own Boss
As a freelancer you are your own boss. You can set your own hours and your own rates. You don’t have to punch a clock or answer to anyone.
Freelancing can be a good career for mothers with young children and other people who need a flexible schedule. You don’t have to worry about being penalized for spending an afternoon at the park or taking your child to a doctor’s appointment. You can choose to work standard hours, work while your child is sleeping or at school or mix up your schedule on a week by week basis.
Unlimited Earning Potential
As a freelancer, the harder you work, the more money you will make. If you have the dedication to work quickly and find new clients, you can bring in a very lucrative income for your family. Writing is a great business because you don’t have any overhead costs.
Mix it Up
Working at the same job for years and years can be boring an momentous. As a freelancer, you have the ability to work on a variety of different projects. This freedom can keep your career fun and diverse. You can work on a brochure one day and web content the next day. You can be writing about health care one hour and theme parks the next.
