Topic: Freelance VS Fulltime
As a freelancer there are all kinds of benefits. You can make your own hours, be your own boss, work in your pj's if you want to(althought I don't recomend it), decide which jobs you want to work on and do it your own way and potentialy make more money than you could working for someone else.
Very often people choose freelance just for these reasons alone without considering the other side....yes there is another side. You may be your own boss but your client's needs are of the utmost importance...because they are your paycheck...For example if your new client is counting on you to get a rush job uploaded to the Orient and you have to sit in front of the computer for 2.5 hrs. waving the mouse to make sure it it goes through, then that's exactly what you need to do to keep your client happy; of course you have to want to do it in the first place.
There is a way to say no to your clients like offer an alternative solution or point them in the right direction. They will remeber how helpful you were even if they can't use your particular service this time around and more often than not they will mention you to others and that's like gold to a freelancer.
