So, I have written about the Top 3 Reasons Why Freelancing is Cool on 11th February 2009.
I would like to continue to add more reasons and here is a list of 5 reasons why I think freelancing is cool.
1. No more paying for transportation
(I used to take the bus to work and it costs me RM2 every working day, so 22 days x RM2 = RM44 a month)
2. No more spending extra money for lunch
(It costs about RM5 per lunch and I work an average 22 days a month, so 22 days x RM5 = RM110 a month)
3. Get to spend more time watching my favourite drama series – I love Charmed and Chuck
4. Friends envy me – It is not my intention to make them envy me, but they do because I work from home. They wish to be me!
5. Even my mum thinks I am unemployed (at first) and she has no idea how I can give her money to spend – which is pretty cool
Until today, most people around me can’t understand the concept of my work. Sometimes, I am getting tired of having to explain many times about what I do, and how I can earn a living.
Extra reason: My income is unpredictable
I really love the fact that I can save some money as I no longer use public transportation and I don’t eat out as often as I used to, which means I can save about RM154 a month, and that is a big deal for me. An extra RM154 every month means I can pay off my debt faster.
What is the coolest reason for you to freelance?
