A lot of people dream of ditching their job and going freelance, but not many actually take the leap.
Fear holds the majority of people back but if you want to start your own business and live your dream life, you're going to have to take a few risks.
Whether you want to travel the world as a digital nomad, escape the rat race and be your own boss, become a full-time content creator or just be able to stay home with your kids, starting your own business and going freelance could be the route for you.
Here are seven reasons why it could be the best decision you'll ever make.
Seven Reasons to Start Your Own Freelance Business
1. You'll have more freedom
Working for yourself means you can be your own boss, set your own hours and take time off whenever you need it. You won't have to answer to anyone but yourself.
2. You can work from anywhere
As well as having the freedom to work when you want, you're also able to work from wherever you want, whether that's a coffee shop, the library, on the beach in a faraway land or just tucked up in your bed with a nice cup of tea.
3. You can choose which work to accept
You're able to pick which clients you want to work with and which projects to take on, and you can refuse anything that conflicts with your vision or values.
4. There's no limit to how much you can earn
When you work for a company you usually receive a set wage for an agreed number of hours, but when you work for yourself you can decide exactly how much you want to work, charge what you're worth and take advantage of passive income streams, and the best part is that you're lining your own pockets rather than someone else's.
5. You get to do what you love every day
You'll no longer dread that Monday morning alarm; in fact, you'll be excited to jump out of bed in the morning and get to work on building your empire.
6. You can ditch the boring commute
With less time spent sitting in traffic or on a crowded train, you'll have more time to work on your goals or just to rest and spend time with your family.
7. Your confidence will increase
Starting your own business is no mean feat and there's a lot to learn. There will be many times you feel incredibly proud of yourself for everything you've accomplished and you'll start to feel more and more confident in yourself and your abilities.
