Don’t believe the hype — freelancing is not all about working remotely in beach huts while sipping cocktails.


If you make it at freelancing, it’s far better than working full-time. You make more money and have more freedom.


But if you don’t make it, it’s far, far worse, because you’ll be on Fiverr and 99designs scraping the bottom of the barrel for job opportunities, working with unreasonable clients that pay late or not at all, and you’ll have no time to invest in your own growth.


As a freelancer, you need to invest in your own growth. No one will do it for you. If you don’t do it, you will quickly stagnate.
