Everyday, people are leaving the security of their 9-5 jobs to pursue their passions as freelancers. The ability to work in a field that you love, combined with the freedom of a flexible work schedule where you are in the driver’s seat is causing a notable spike in interest in the freelancing world. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 40% of the United States workforce will be either freelancers, temps, independent contractors, or solopreneurs by 2020.
While the freelance world is growing, that does not mean that it is an easy career path by any means. The fact that you are in charge of everything means exactly that: you are in charge of EVERYTHING. Networking, time management, and even self-motivation are all under the umbrella of duties for the self-employed. Thankfully, for those looking to make the jump into the fast growing world of freelance, Invoice2go has put together this helpful infographic to help make that transition as smooth as possible. They even have a brand new (and free!) invoice template generator, which is a great resource for anyone looking to try their hand at invoicing.
