Most freelancers start freelancing mainly in a search for balance in their life, a desire to build and expand a business, or a desire to earn more money. But there are few key factors that weigh out before becoming a full time freelancer.
Mashable recently ran an attractive infographic illustrating the findings of a recent survey from 24 Seven on freelancers’ attitudes towards freelancing.
“The good news is that according to the study, the longer you freelance, the happier you’ll be beating to your own drum. While new freelancers said they’d be very likely to accept traditional employment in the first year (8.2 on a 10-point scale), seasoned freelancers of 10 years or longer reported a 6.1/10 likelihood. That could have something to do with the fact that 55% of freelancers are expecting a salary increase in 2012 (only 13% are expecting a decrease). Not bad, not bad at all.”
