We’ve come to this digital age where it gets easier to work at our own timings, working on things that we are passionate about and yet earn an income from it. More and more people are discovering the joy of being a free agent, and it can revolve around being an online writer or a pet groomer, to a party planner or even a designer taking up graphic design jobs.
There are many great perks of becoming an independent talent. And if you aren’t one already, here are some reasons why you should give it a go, especially as StageMetro’s app make it easier than ever before to market and manage your lifestyle services from anywhere.
1. To work from anywhere
First of all, you can work from anywhere that you desire, be it at the nearest Starbucks or at the comfort of your home. You’re your own boss, and instead of having to join the hustle and bustle of the CBD crowd, you can work from home!
2. You can pick your own clients
Let’s face it – clients can get a little nasty and demanding at times, and it gets rather gloomy when you have no choice but to deal with people that you can’t communicate well with even if you don’t want to. However, being your own free agent lets you have the choice of deciding whether you’d like to work with Brand A, B or C, and all together at once! You have the luxury of offering an offline or online job, choosing your own clients and who you’d like to provide your works for.
3. Earn from your passion
One of the best parts of working for yourself is that you’re actually making an income from doing something you love. The more you do, the more satisfied you are, and you can even make money from putting a smile to your client’s face! Even though a fixed salary might sound safe and comforting, what’s not to love about being an entrepreneur who earn money online and actually enjoy their job? As the saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
4. Having a work life balance
You’re pretty much free to work as you like. Instead of having to stick to working a 9-to-5 job everyday, you can choose having to work in the morning, have a picnic with your family in the afternoon, and get back home to continue the job in the evening depending on your workload. It’s all about having a work-life balance and managing your schedule well. Most importantly, you’re doing what you love as a living, and that’s a great part of being independent!
