The flexible workforce is one of the fastest growing segments of the employment market

Experienced veteran? Recent grad? Freelancers come in all shapes and sizes

As a freelancer, you’ll need to think outside the box

Your work environment will be anything but traditional

You may work odd hours

And you have to be willing to multi-task

Clients: Sometimes they can be a bit off

And it’s OK to be skeptical with what a client wants

But risks can be a good thing

And it’s even better if you can get excited about it

You’ll probably have to take on multiple projects

And even though it seemed like a good idea at this time, you’ll feel like this

And this

Breaks will definitely need to happen

But sometimes, you’ll want to throw in the towel

So when the going gets tough, encourage yourself

And keep at it

Because sooner or later, you’ll have a genius idea

And you’ll start making progress

Which will make you feel like this

After a while, you may find yourself celebrating a win

And becoming more established

Not to mention successful

And you’ll start gaining more clients

Making all the hard work worth it

Because you’ll be doing work you love

And be happier because of it
