Area of the World from Which You Will Present:India

Language in Which You Will Present:English

Target Audience(s):

Short Session Description (one line):Freelance a need for Students.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

I’ve noticed a trend among people who work a 2-3 job, but desire to one-day own their own business:

They’re scared.

Scared that if they take the leap into the freelance world, they’re going to end up scraping pennies from under their sofa and lose all the job security they took years to build at their current 9-5.

Today, I’m here to tell you why I think that mindset is a little twisted, and, in my experience, incorrect. Want to be a freelancer or business owner, but feel the heebie jeebies about quitting your “safe” career? Well, I think freelancing can actually be a heck of a lot more secure and profitable. Want to know why? Read on, friend.

Before we begin, I want to say two things:

  1. Freelancing probably won’t be easy at first. You might struggle for a few months. But who doesn’t struggle for a little while as they’re getting used to a new job? I don’t want to make it sound like becoming a successful freelancer is a piece of cake (Pineapple Upside-Down, if you’re taking orders), but you just have to get over the hump.
  2. If you have a 9-5 that you love, then this post isn’t designed for you. I’m not here to say that everyone should jump ship and start their own business. That…would be madness. But if you feel stuck or bored in your current line of work and yearn to start your own biz, then this post is totally for you, yo.

Cool, so now that we’re on the same page, let’s get crack-a-lackin’. Here’s why I think freelancing can bring you more job security and income than your current career.
