Freelancing is a life-saver.

I don't know where I would be without it.
I'm really grateful to God and NL. This forum opened my eyes to freelancing and I ain't doing bad.

Whatever you believe becomes your reality. If you think you can't make such amount then you will never make such amount. But don't think others can't.


See you, you your self are you making up to that amount, be lyig up and down. I work on upwork and fiverr for over 4 years now. I am a full stack Developer. Its not like i dont know whats up. $20,000 permonth is $240,000 per years, do you think that amount is easy. It is obvious youre not a freelancer, all what you said are hearsays. If you understand the system, you will know what i am saying.

You think say freelancing na beans, its all about having a top notch skill and marketing it , nothing like what you believe, its all about skillset

From my experience , those who are making a kill on freelancing will never let you know their worth or how much they make . They will never tell you their secrets

don't mind him, i have been on upwork for a while, that amount is ridiculous, secondly how do you finish a job in how many hours to then submit proposals and get another job immediately, haba, no b the same upwork, i don't even work from nigeria, yet getting a job on upwork can be stressful, that niqqa is a liar, $2,000 job should take you about 3-10 days to finish, so ho did he manage that in a month, agencies on upwork don't really hit that amount every month.

Great! You mentioned "agencies". Progress is being made. Upwork also isn't the only freelance platform on the internet.
Think like there's no box.

Ok.
I’m viewing our weekly buy-my-ebook thread.
Since OP and his alternates started with lies let me add my own.
I once schooled with a guy who became a freelancer.
He stopped his education to focus squarely on the venture.
He became so good that he’s now appointed as the president of a little known Middle Eastern country.

It has become a workplace commonality, finding bright employees feeling frustrated and stagnated in the clutches of their full-time jobs. Often, they can be seen complaining about having little time and no freedom to choose the way they want to lead their lives. If you’re someone who’s feeling that way, freelancing as a career path is something that you may think about.

If we visit the statistics, we can find that our country, India, is a storehouse to the second highest number of freelance professionals in the world, standing only behind the USA. It’s fairly intuitive to understand these numbers. Indians are known worldwide for being extremely skilled and great working partners. English being a popular language in the country helps in breaking continental language barriers and helps freelancers find well paying remote projects across the world, with extremely lucrative pay scales. Even if one looks at jobs within the subcontinent itself, freelancing can come with handsome payouts amidst its other many advantages.

In order to deep dive into the real benefits of working as a freelancer, Entrepreneur India spoke to two individuals well qualified to shed light and share experiences on the subject.



Become A Better Human Being

A freelancing career can be described to be to the microcosm of one’s whole life. It ends up evolving a person into a better individual. This automatically happens as a part of the process, where one is able to view life as a whole in entirety, something much bigger than a single job or a client. Mukti shares, “You learn to help each other in the same industry. You see fellow freelancers like your own family instead of rivals. When you have faced non-payment, financially crazy months or difficult clients, you want to protect other freelancers from this kind of stress.” She shares that her experience as a freelancer has helped her appreciate the beauty of life, something that’s uncertain, yet beautiful and worth living.

The first one is Dipesh Garg, CEO & Founder of Truelancer.com. His business runs an online freelancing marketplace that empowers companies to hire freelancers and freelancers to gain access to relevant projects. His portal has more than 450,000 freelancers registered with them. Following are his views on advantages of working as a freelancer -

Freedom To Choose Clients And Projects

One of the biggest advantages of working independently as a freelancer is gaining the freedom of choice and steering forward without any restrictions. Freelancing makes it very simple for a person to choose the type of work based on what interests and benefits them best.

Immense Flexibility Of Location


Freelancing empowers individuals to lead the much sought after laptop-lifestyle. It comes with immense freedom to work anytime, from anywhere in the world as long as the job is well done and on time. Dipesh opines, “For a freelancer, the most important thing is to deliver quality work and he gets to choose his location of work and has the flexibility of timing.”

An Opportunity To Earn More

Freelancing allows individuals to gain access to clients beyond any geographic barriers, be it different states in the country or even overseas locations. This helps a person stretch beyond geography and work on what rewards their skill the best. “Today the way business & people work is changing rapidly. Freelancing opens up a new world of opportunities to the global workforce”, suggests Dipesh.

The next individual Entrepreneur India sought views from is Mukti Masih. In addition to being the head of content at AVM Pictures, Mukti is a well-established freelance writer with extensive experience of a decade in freelancing. Her remarkable portfolio glitters with her content contribution in the web development space, in addition to the scripts she’s written for over a hundred plus corporate and ad films.

Here’s what Mukti has to suggest about the perks of her preferred professional arrangement -

Multi-Faceted Exposure

Freelancing enables faster growth opportunities as compared to any full-time job. It also helps to nurture great interpersonal skills and the ability to deal with different kinds of situations. This is due to the exposure one earns while working simultaneously in a variety of fields and domains and with different people. “While it's always good to excel in one subject, freelancing exposes you to various kinds of companies and domains. As a result, you learn more in say five years of freelancing than being in one or two jobs in that same period of time”, shares Mukti. She suggests that this happens because each time one deals with a new client directly, they are required to start from scratch and figure the entire unfolding process. Moreover, as a freelancer, one is required to build their own work portfolio to establish their credibility. This ends up making them a sales person, a pre-sales person and also marketing executive.


A Chance To Experiment With Your Craft


Another advantage one gains in freelancing is the chance to truly experiment with their skill set. This often manifests into one stretching their own horizon in terms of versatility and reaching their best version. “In my case, when I worked as a writer in my full-time job, I was only writing about my beat - articles and features. When I started freelancing, I learnt blogging, which was quite different from in-depth articles that I was used to. Thereafter, I co-founded a video production company with my brother so I got the exposure to script and screenplay writing. I have also written scripts for audio books, website content, copies for ad films and TVCs, product descriptions for e-commerce websites, white papers, and e-books. I am quite sure, a few jobs down the line wouldn't give me the freedom to write all these kind of things”, recalls Mukti.




In this light we invite to join www.scribesbay.com and earn moeny with your writing skills.

Re: The Benefits Of Working As A Freelancer by Nobody: 12:19pm On May 09
Was looking for job for so long..... Finally got tired of it when I went for an interview and was being offered 30k to work as an intern handling up to 15 social media accounts. I've decided to focus on freelancing. I have skills in writing, social media, graphics design and web design. My skills are not so strong though. So I am looking at building them up through GenM apprenticeship program where I'll take free courses and take apprenticeships too and boost my portfolio and later join their freelance program where I'll be paid a minimum of twenty dollars an hour.

If you have any advice for a fresh freelancer, please share. Its not been easy at all. I'll try out scribesbay though.

In case you will like to check out GenM, the link to apply is in my signature. I'm open to questions on the program if you have any.
