Abstract

You believe that you can be your own boss. Not just in work, but life in general.
You can manage your time productively outside of any system.
You are tired of the 9–5 mundane routine.
You trust your skills you gained over the years better than systems and corporates.
You are your best version when you are independent.
Your networking skills are great.
You need the freedom to choose your projects, clients, the way you work and not someone micromanaging you.

Well, then welcome to the world of freelancing!
