SHOULD YOU BECOME A FREELANCER?

Self-development through independence and freelancing lifestyle that is becoming so popular these years rises some questions people often ask you (me) disbelieving that every single one of us is able to achieve its professional maximum:

Is it the whole problem in staying strong on the path you’ve decided to pursuit and riding that roller-coaster while being on the top and the bottom on regular periods or too much of you being an eternal optimist – a firm believer that hard work can always take you to the stratosphere of personal achievement that reaches miles beyond financial satisfaction?

Is it the disappointment with watching folks around us giving up their dreams to achieve whatever they dreamt about when they were just little kids and then trying to convince you that your professional goals are just fairytales as long as they’re not instrumented through a conventional business practice?

Or are the answers to all these questions we offer to those disbelieving guys somewhere hidden in the things we learn from every single tough professional moment while we regularly update our experience with new ones, building with it our confidence and the expertise of every next word we artistically create, every single move in making our next painting spectacular and every single angle that gives so many dimensions to our newly written stories?

“Yes, I’ve made a great deal of dough from my fiction, but I never set a single word down on paper with the thought of being paid for it … I have written because it fulfilled me … I did it for the buzz. I did it for the pure joy of the thing. And if you can do it for joy, you can do it forever.” – Stephen King
