"I'll have more free time!" and other common freelancing myths
I always think it's really funny when I read how freelancing will give you more free time to do the things you want to do.
At the start, I was under the whole "work from home fantasy illusion" that freelancing would give me MORE time...boy was I wrong. In many ways, it is way more difficult and time-consuming than many full time nine to five jobs I have ever had.
There are no set work hours when you are a freelancer and you have to respond when the client messages, whatever time of day or night, so you end up babysitting your project or email box to ensure you're not missing updates.
And, clients don't understand that you have a life too!
Are you having the same experience? And, what are some other common myths of freelancing? Such as things you believed about freelancing (before you began) that turned out not to be true.
