Be Your Own Boss

Imagine the sweet freedom of making your own decisions and doing things your way.

How to achieve this? One way is to have your own business. It can be hard if you don’t know or is uncertain of what exactly you want to do. It might be harder if you are working full time and have this idea of not having enough time to handle a side hustle. But let’s look at it this way, if it’s something that you have always wanted to do, just take a breath and make that leap. Remember, it’s not a life hack, it’s something that you prioritize and commit to.

The most common business that you can venture into without giving up your day job to take up freelance. If you’re good at a certain skill, why not help other people and get paid for it. You have absolute control over what you can and cannot do. Some of the common skills for freelancing are writing, designing, developing and jobs that you can do behind a computer screen. There are plenty of freelance sites that you can sign up and be a part of like Fiverr and Upwork. Some companies prefer to hire freelancers due to the fact that the tasks are not always on-going. When it’s a one-time task, freelancers are hired to get the job done.

Prices are usually set according to the kind of services they provide and it may vary depending on the load of certain tasks. The beauty of being your own boss is that you get to decide your own workload and payment. It’s great for those who prefer a flexible working environment.

Freelancing is also a great way to gather experiences and create impressive portfolios. Some freelancers are comfortable with just freelancing while others might get absorbed to the company and get a full-time job. Either way, having impressive portfolios can definitely help freelancers land on their feet in this cut-throat economy.

In a traditional sense of market, entrepreneurs offer  their products and services and develop their business, increasing staff and generate revenue. But, freelancers are challenging this concept as a growing number bring a different additional meaning of entrepreneurship. They offer their own skillsets, advertising them on the freelancing marketplaces, establishing themselves as entrepreneurs and all the while working independently.
