Freelancers have tough life…but money is the driven force for them. Do You Agree?
No, I can’t agree, because I know freelancers who don’t have a tough life (on the contrary!), and I also know of others who do it mainly, because they love what they do, and in their cases money is more of a reward rather than the main force that drives them.
I agree with what you’re saying. I quit my job in retail management to pursue freelancing and I only make about half of what I used to. I’m doing it because I love writing (and hated both retail and managing :P) I just want to make enough money to pay my bills and be able to write everyday.
First of all, I don’t worry about what other freelancers are doing in their business or personal life. I’d say for the most part Freelancers are the captain of their ship. Doing what they are passionate about, and getting paid at the same time. The driving force for me is staying focused, grounded & motivated to expand my brand.
Things are tough in every profession, this is not exclusive to freelancers and it comes without guarantee that you’ll get (any) money when you start freelancing, it’s a job with great potential but the results depend.
