I love freelancing. I love everything about freelancing. The best thing about freelancing? FREEDOM! My life is changed when I started freelancing and I love the changes!
Here’s how freelancing has changed my life, so far:
I think this is the most important aspect of all. I can manage time better when I get to control my own working hours. I get to spend more time for myself every day! I barely get to see daylight 10 years ago (being stuck in a shopping mall working as a retail assistant). Now I get to spend more time outdoor, either at beautiful parks or enjoy delicious coffee(s)* at coffee shops.
I used to get ill really often when I was working in retail, and it was terrible (who wants to get ill anyway?). I spent quite a fortune on medical expenses and I hated it. Now, my health has improved tremendously, physically and mentally. Truly loving my life!
I hardly had any time to spend with my family when I was working in retail due to the long working hours but now I get to hang out with family and friends all the time (well… most of the time). It is very important for me to spend time with my
parents mum (after all, we are not getting any younger! Also, my dad passed away in early 2016).
I have always wanted to study Psychology and I got the chance two years after I started freelancing. I am taking it slow and steady but I am definitely getting there (in fact, my last semester would be Jan 2018, meaning I would be eligible to graduate in late 2018)! Apart from that, I have learned so much from mentors around the world such as Problogger. I truly enjoyed the experience and happy to gain more knowledge every day.
Freelancing has opened many doors for me, and it never ceases to amaze me. It is a wonderful journey and I get to meet many new friends around the world. The best part of all, I get to work with many amazing people with beautiful souls and I learned so much from them. You will be amazed at how much you can learn, and how many people you get to meet when you run your own business. It also allows you to focus more on yourself, and your business.
Freelancing has much to offer to those who seek freedom and change of lifestyle. If you are considering a change of career, it is never too late to start freelancing.
*I do enjoy coffee, and if I have it my way, I might have more than one cup of coffee a day, so feel free to fund my coffee addiction 🙂
