Why did I choose to Be a freelancer Rather Than Join a company?
One of the most commonly asked questions I get from other developers and people in similar professions like mine is why I chose to become a freelancer rather than join a company. For me, being able to have my own schedule, complete projects on my own time, and manage my own finances without a boss looking over my shoulder was too good an opportunity to pass up. Still, there are some drawbacks, as well as some benefits, you should consider before making this decision yourself. Here are just some of the reasons why I chose to be a freelancer rather than join a company.
Get involved in your local community
There are many reasons why someone might choose to freelance rather than join a company. One reason is the price factor—freelancers can often charge less per project than companies. Additionally, freelancers have more control over their schedules and workloads than those who work for companies. And finally, freelancers often have more freedom to choose the projects they work on than those who are employed by companies. All of these factors make freelancing an attractive option for many people.
Do what’s right for you
I’ve always been an independent person and I like being in control of my own destiny. When it comes to work, that means being a freelancer rather than joining a company. For me, it’s the best of both worlds – I get to be my own boss and set my own hours, but I also get to choose the projects I work on and who I work with. And of course, the price factor is always a consideration!
Aim high and be ready to work hard
When I was deciding whether to join a company or become a freelancer, the price factor was an important consideration. As a freelancer, I can set my own rates and work as much or as little as I want.
