I deal with lesser stress.


There’s no boss breathing down my neck every day. There’s not much pressure because I set my own requirements for each project/job. I plot the project schedule guided by my clients’ requirements.

I mean. We all have deadlines but with the flexibility in hours and you being your own boss, you can manage your own stress with at your pace.

I have freedom of choice.


I can pick my own clients so I don’t have to deal with difficult clients. I can “fire” my clients if I don’t enjoy working for them. I don't need the negativity of clients from hell from consuming me.

In the same way, I can choose the best clients who I like working with.

It’s perfect for introverts like me.


I don’t have to make small talk with anyone or deal with lots of people every day. I can go out with my friends whenever I want so I choose my company wisely. If you're an introvert like me, it's the perfect setup.

For those extroverts, you can always schedule meetings with your family or friends. At least, you only go out with the people that matter the most.


I save time

I save time.


Because all of my work can be done at home, I don’t have to waste time preparing to go out and commute. I can simply get up, take a bath, have my breakfast and start working right away.

I’m my own boss.


I set my own rules and make my own choices. I don’t have to answer to anyone but myself. Whatever projects I work on, I discuss the requirements with the clients and then proceed to complete the project with little or no supervision. For those self-starters, it's the perfect setup.

 

Now that you’ve seen a glimpse of my work life, I hope this will encourage you to make that all-important step to become freelancers, search for clients online and work from home. Feel free to leave a comment or two if you’re keen on learning more about working from home.
