“I’m working less hours each day and having more time for relaxing” (My Freelance Life 012)

Taking a leap of faith into the freelance world can feel more like pushing yourself off a cliff. Andy knows, because he did exactly that a few months ago. In today’s episode, Andy talks about the realities of freelancing and his thought process to going from a ‘flexible’ day job to a full-time freelancing career.

We also talk about the ‘burden’ of freelancing and how to keep a balance by working while on vacations.

While the full-time salaried workforce can take holidays and still get paid, freelancers like Andy have to tread carefully – taking time out means not making money.

In this episode, we also talk about:

  • How to deal with downtime as a freelancer
  • Full-time day jobs VS a freelancing career: Pros & Cons
  • Reasons you should go freelance – and if it doesn’t work, you can always go back 😉
