Want more freedom at work? Think about going freelance.

[title]
Of the five million Brits who work for themselves, 41 per cent freelance. They typically work for multiple large firms rather than running a company of their own.

While it can be uncertain, having flexibility over your working hours is a huge benefit.

But the benefits are the same as for sole traders, including picking your clients, setting your own prices and having a greater say over your work/life balance.

To help those choosing this approach, National Freelancers Day is held each tear, full of talks and networking opportunities  (nationalfreelancersday.com) 

Albert Azis-Clauson of freelancing hub underpinned.co says: “Freelancing used to be associated with a few niche industries but now almost all sectors offer freelance work.

"It won’t suit everyone but it can be a great way to break into an industry or can make more money once established.”

How to get into freelancing. 

Don’t wait for work to come to you. Go and pitch to potential clients. A scattergun approach is fine at first. Over time you will hone who you want to work with.

Join a social group of freelancers. The first couple of years are crucial for any freelancer, so build your network.

Move the home office away from home. Find a workspace out of your house to keep work and home separate.

Walk away from that client you hate working with. Veteran freelancers will tell you the value of turning down work. Clients should treat you with respect. If they won’t accept your terms, walk away.

Sort your taxes early. Freelancers are thought to pay more than £1bilion incorrectly to HMRC, so give yourself time to get it right.
