Many of us are employed, working in our jobs and minding our business when the thought of working from home struck our mind.
What if I could avoid traffic, spend more time with my family, earn in Dollars, utilize all of the skills that I have and get paid even more?
Here are some examples of the advantages of working freelance from home or that could help you make a sensible decision.
You are your boss
I know that this may seem overrated, but what does it mean to be your boss? First, you have control of everything- your job, your schedule, the clients that you work with and the money that you are going to earn.
Prefer a flexible time? Possible. Don’t want to work with a client? That’s fine. You want to do Email marketing and animation only? That’s OK. Want to earn 100,000 PHP this month? That is my goal.
Being your boss means you are entirely in control and responsible for the things that you do. You think and decide for yourself.
When you are employed, you have a regular working schedule. But when you are freelancing, it is possible that you can choose your hours. There are many reasons why some people want their plan to be flexible.
Moms, for example, are busy taking care of their children. They have to prioritize their children and the household first. Flexibility allows moms to do this while earning money. Flexibility enables you to do other things that you want to do such as spending more time with your family or learning a new skill.
More Money in Dollars
Freelancing is a business. And just like any other business, it gives you the potential to earn as much as you want. The sky is the limit. But know that it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a lot of determination, tenacity, and grit.
You can work with two jobs, four jobs, five job or 10 jobs. It doesn’t matter for as long as you can juggle it all at once and it doesn’t affect your performance.
No more traffic
Yes! According to the Straits Times Website, Filipinos in Manila spend an hour and six minutes each day or 16 days a year stuck in traffic, worthing them about 100,000 pesos a year in lost income opportunities.
These numbers are BIG and staggering, but can you imagine it? A lot of wasted money and time! When you are working from home, there’s no need to move from one place to another. You can work in your pajamas and the comfort of your own home.
Wherever for as long as there is a stable, fast internet connection. That is freedom!
Forget the days when you drag yourself to work. When you feel like you are walking with a ball and a chain tied to your foot. Don’t get me wrong; I know that there are days when we don’t feel like working.
But it is different when your job is in alignment with your passion and with your skills. When you are passionate about something, it is harder to tire yourself out, and you feel content as an individual.
