What Is Freelancing?
The Oxford definition for freelance is as follows:
“Working for different companies at different times rather than being permanently employed by one company.”
Freelancers are ultimately responsible for themselves and accountable to their many clients. They are independent contractors that work with people and businesses in a variety of industries. I’m personally inclined to think of freelancers in the technology and marketing arena, but these self-employed individuals (freelancers) span all markets. Most consultants and coaches who don't consider themselves freelancers, actually are.
Freelancers tend to value their freedom and control over their personal and professional lives. This vocation can help them live out their beliefs.
Some freelancers make it a permanent vocation while others use it a temporary vehicle towards launching a business or gaining full-time employment.
