With the rise in the number of the freelancing millennials, there has been a drastic change in the global work culture. Freelancers are those who are not exactly committed to one company but offers his/her services to multiple clients at the same time. India ranks as the second largest country after the United States with over 16 million freelancers working independently in different sectors including IT, finance and creative writing. Recently, freelancing is been majorly opted by women who wish to work but cannot follow an office life due to personal reasons or wish to start with something of their own.
Why do people freelance?
It’s quick to start if you have the required skills and assets to get started.
You can decide your own time schedule
You take only the work you can deliver
There’s always a demand for quality work
Picking your clients is totally your choice
You can decide the price of your services
Though freelancing provides a great way to work with flexibility, there are certain challenges that cannot be overlooked. Some of the common challenges that are usually encountered by the freelancers are:
You feel isolated from the society
There is a lack of motivation
Face-to-face client interactions are difficult
Stretching the work hours
Various distractions at home
Lack of collaboration opportunities
Any of the above challenges or a combination of them can seriously impact your work. It’s important to address all of these issues when you are shifting from corporate life to work from home. Try to have a good discussion with a friend or anyone you know is working as a freelancer that can answer your questions. You never know if the other person offers you collaboration. That’s the best way to learn and start at the same time.
