You can very much compare it to taking an online class because you are in charge of making sure everything gets done. On the other hand, if you are the type of person that just cannot stand the same 9-5 job everyday then freelancing is probably for you. You can set up your own time schedule, be in charge of the jobs you do, and sleep or eat whenever you want to.

It also gives you the opportunity to work on whatever your online future goals may be while you are still able to make money and pay the rent as you go along. You will be able to accomplish personal goals, and work on future goals at the same time. It is much harder to do this with the 9-5.

Working as a freelancer is a networking system in itself. In your time spent as a freelancer, you will work for many different people, many of whom you will build business relationships and will work with many times in the future.

Social networking is all about creating business relationships when it comes to the Internet business. Your relationships will be created in a more concrete way however, and that is because you will be able to actually work for many different companies/contractors.

The best part about freelancing is that you can start and stop whenever you want to! It’s real easy to figure out if it is for you or not. You can do as much and as little as you want, and if you don’t want to quit your day job then you don’t have to. You have nothing to lose but a lot to gain.
