Let’s be clear before we get into this list, freelancing is not for everyone.
It’s like Marmite, once you learn to love it you’ll keep coming back for more!
Here’s our (somewhat tongue in cheek) list why freelancing is bad for your health.
Freelancing gives you…
From rich foods and fine wines afforded by your increased earnings.
2. Sun Burn
From long days on the golf course or exotic holidays abroad.
Following nights of client entertainment. How else do you source the next gig?
4. Back Stabbing Pains
From the jealous permies you work alongside when you take home more money and (sometimes) have less stress.
From the other half, complaining about your lazy days when ‘on the bench’ (and long hours when on a job / entertaining).
Facing the facts as a freelancer
Sadly it’s not all sunshine and roses.
When you work as a freelancer you are your own boss – good times. But you are also your own boss – bad times! You need to have discipline and motivation to source work and manage your business affairs.
There are also a number of things to consider:
- Trading structure – should you work self employed or limited company?
- Accounting systems – what’s best, paper and spreadsheets or cloud accounting software?
- Professional partners – do you have time to do it yourself or should you work with an accountant?
