"Must be nice" to be a freelancer, eh?

  • At least you don't have to get up and go to work everyday."
  • "You're pretty good. If you wanted a job, you could probably get one."
  • "Must be nice."
  • "Freelancing isn't a real career."
-- From a post on The Freelance Strategist listing "Really Annoying Things People Say to Freelance Writers." [H /T to Story Board.]

Well, I think that being a freelancer is really nice. But as everything, it has its lacks and advantages. You can be your own boss, don't wait for a payday and wake up when you want but on the other hand it’s harder to be organized and get things done in time. As or the wage then it depends on you and you don’t have a fixed in come as you do when you work for example, in the office. Some freelancers are very successful while others should borrow to stay afloat because can’t find a way to make their income stable and to organize their working hours.
