When people hear I'm a freelancer, they hear unemployed; some don't understand what it is most of the time. Just ignore those people; being a freelancer means you have to communicate with new people every time after moving on from one project to another. It can give you great self-esteem in life.

Benefits that matter and outweighs all the hassles

  • πŸ‘₯ Ability to choose who you work with
  • πŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈ Control of workload
  • πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Work from anywhere
  • πŸ‘ͺ Staying connected with friends and family

How can you make it work?

The pandemic has pushed many companies to facilitate work-from-home, but it is not for everybody. Many people struggle to work-from-home because they are used to working in a professional environment; adapting to an entirely different environment will be hard, which results in poor work performance.

If you are a freelancer or want to become one, you have to customize your work environment as mentioned below:

If you work-from-home most of the time

It would be best to design and optimize your work environment in a way that works for you. It might cost a few bucks, but it will help you in the long run.

Traveling Freelancer

This only works for a few people who are flexible to concentrate on any surroundings.

I sit in front of computers for more than 10 hours a day. My work-from-home setup has the following arrangement.

  • 🌞 Bright Day Light - Preferably behind your PC or MacBook.
  • ❄ Air Conditioning.
  • πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ A little bit of space or a Treadmill - for a walk.
  • 🌱 Small Indoor Plants - for Air Purifying.
  • πŸ₯€ Plenty of water.
  • 🎡 Google Home or Alexa - for music.

Like mine, you can facilitate and optimize your work environment to increase productivity.
