Freelancing has quickly become career path of choice for many professionals. It allows workers to be their own boss, work from home or anywhere in the world and set their own hours. According to Forbes, “there are currently an estimated 53 million Americans freelancing, approximately 34 percent of the total workforce. This number is expected to balloon to 50 percent by 2020.” Freelancing is becoming the way of the working world and more people are leaving their 9-5 office jobs to pursue something more flexible.
Although the benefits of freelancing are plenty, most freelancers face the same set of challenges – finding good clients and being charged fees by freelance platforms such as Upwork and Freelancer.
