Freelancing is not what it used to be. In decades past, people were freelancing when they began their careers, as a side gig or part-time profession. Today, by contrast, social media, online marketplaces and other digital marketing resources have made freelancing a lucrative primary career.
At the same time, the benefits of freelancing have remained: setting your own hours, tailoring your work to your skills and working where you want. Succeeding at freelancing means living the dream: being your own boss.
