I’ve been doing freelance for a quite some time now and I can only motivate you to do the same if you are currently doing something that you love to do on the side from your 9 to 5 job. I’ve learnt so much while freelancing. So here are 3 Reasons Why You Should Start Freelancing Next To Your 9 to 5.
1 – New things to add on the CV
The title says it all. Being a freelancer next to your day job gives you more skills to add on to your CV. At this point in time, it’s not only your education that matters. Recruiters are also very intrigued when they get to see skills that are acquired through crash course online and for example webinars. It simply shows a sign of willingness to learn and acquire new skills. If you have worked on a role for many years, even acquire new skills shows that you are quickly to adapt to change and acquire new skills.
2 – Extra $$$ on the side
The second reason that can’t be ignored is that freelancing can bring extra money into the bank account. This shouldn’t be the first aim in order to start freelancing. The reason is because when you start as a freelancer, some months you will earn a lot and some months can be very dry. The income of a freelancer especially in the beginning is far from stable. Nevertheless, it can still be another source of income which is great. Nowadays with the Internet, transferring money and setting up a business has become easier than ever before.
3 – Your own company/ new business prospect
Don’t underestimate the power you have when you start freelancing. When you do something on the side with passion, consistency and manage to understand your target audience, you will be amazed how fast your freelance business can grow. I’ve read and seen so many success stories of people who started freelancing on the side and are now fully living from it. I’m saying this just to mention that it’s not impossible to turn your freelance business into your fulltime business.
