Freelancing - Advantages and Disadvantages

In freelancing, people work for themselves, not for any corporation. They work from home. In the current pandemic situation, It is tough to go outside and find work or do any job. So, it is the best alternative to sit home and do work from home. You have to polish your skill and start to work professionally in any freelance marketplace. You can earn money by doing Freelancing Jobs. Everything has its advantages and disadvantages. 



Some advantages are: 

  • Flexibility of location

You do not need to sit in the office and work 9-5. You can choose the work time of your own. You can work whenever you are free. If you want to go to any other city or country, you only have to pick your laptop to work on your project.

  • Independence

Some people do not like to follow the rules in the office. Like do not get late, do not use mobile and many others. You do not have to follow bossy rules in freelancing. You are your own boss.

  • Save Time

You do not have to waste traveling time from office to home and home to office.
