Now freelancing is very interesting. Many people dream of freelancing without a job. Freelancing has the opportunity to work independently, on the other hand, the amount of income is also higher. 

Many people want to come to this profession as there are no fixed rules of work place and time as well as ease of work. But before entering the freelancing profession, it is important to know the challenges in this field. Loneliness, the risk of getting sick from working at night, and many other things are associated with regrets of social recognition.
Most freelancers think that freelancers have to work day and night to complete the work within the time limit set by the client. Apart from this, even if there is a fixed salary in the job, freelancing work may not always be in hand. You have to wait a long time for work. For those who want to quit their job and start freelancing, it is important to know a few things. They are:

Loneliness needs a partner

Remember that freelancing will make you lonely. Your lifestyle will be different than others. Relationships with friends will be ruined. You have to stay awake at night. You don't have to go to the office on time as you don't have a co-worker. So you will not get office environment during work. Theoretically it sounds good but in reality you will be lonely. It is important to have a support network to overcome this loneliness. You can gossip or chat during the day or at other times. Otherwise you will be completely isolated. It is important to keep in touch with friends and relatives. As there is no set time for work, you may have to work in the morning and in the afternoon, due to which the relationship with family and friends is lost.

Managing one's own finances
When working for a large company, many complex financial issues are fixed by the company. Especially issues like salary and taxes. When it comes to independent work, such as freelancing, you have to take responsibility for your own finances. In addition to filing tax returns on time, it is important to look at ways to save money. Freelancers need to pay attention to the fact that there is a pension facility at the end of the job, as well as money saved in the last year of their work.

Saving money for illness
Sick leave is available for illness. Make time for your work, such as sick breaks or year-end trips. One thing to keep in mind, if you work in freelancing, you will get paid. If you don't work, you won't get paid in those days. So it is important to make a practice of saving money before doing freelancing or self-employment. Many times when you start work you may not have money in hand. There is no set rule for how much you will earn in a month. In a month a lot of income can come, again in a month it can go to zero. So there must be a balance between income and expenditure. It is also important to have a holiday for yourself.

Improving Your Skills
Freelancing marketplace is a challenge for those who are just starting out. Getting a job is now very difficult. However, for those who are already established and have many employers, the benefits have also increased. So those who have less clients and those who are looking for work, create a great portfolio online. Also work hard at the beginning. Gain your respect and skills. Impress the client with your work, communication skills. Behave professionally. But first of all you need to prove your skills. Practice what you are good at. Find a job that suits your skills and get positive feedback from clients. This is the key to your success. When you start to succeed, be sure to choose the opportunity that suits you best.

Work according to your skills

Are your skills suitable for becoming a freelancer? Many people want to come into the freelancing profession without realizing it. Remember, this is a competitive field for skilled people. In this case, it is difficult to survive with limited skills. If you ruin the work field, the image of the country will be ruined. So you should not come in this case without knowing the work. Working from home can be interesting. But before starting this work, it is necessary to think about coming to this career. The number of freelancers is increasing due to platforms like Fiber, Upwork. This includes a wide range of job opportunities for freelancers in the creative industry, such as design, music and audio, as well as programming and tech. But before thinking about a career in this field, think about which sector you will do well.

Need your own motivation
Are you self-employed? You need more than luck to succeed in affiliate business. Freelancers often get frustrated when it comes to working in the freelancing sector. At such times you have to take responsibility for yourself. Freelancer means own business, self-manager, self-accountant. Have a meeting with yourself. Must be in a hurry to work within the deadline. Must be in a hurry to meet the expectations of the buyer. In other words, you have to be approachable at all times with things like work pressure, communication. However, many times there may not be work at hand, then do not be frustrated. Remember, every job has its ups and downs. You have to motivate yourself. Goodwill and dedication to your work will keep you ahead. If you have discipline in your work, you will be able to take advantage of working independently and flexibly.

I always wanted to have a freelance job aside from my main job. I had a client once, but I realized it takes more than just managing time, but also dedication to doing the job despite the conditions you've mentioned. It's not easy so one must be ready :)
