Since the beginning of the COVID-19 global pandemic, businesses worldwide have reassessed their need for employees to work from the office. Over 30% of Australians with a job are now working from home with more work flexibility than ever before.
Working from home not only presents new opportunities for your current job, but also new opportunities in other fields. With more control over your work schedule and efficiency, the time to begin a side hustle is now.
Starting a freelance career does not mean you have to quit your regular job. Freelancing can be done in addition to regular work and serve as an additional income stream as well as a creative outlet.
As a freelancer, you can do the work you want to do, when you want to do it. If you’ve ever thought about making money designing, writing, editing or programming – now is your chance. With so many specialty services in demand, consider your skills and knowledge and how you can capitalise on your own talent.
By diversifying your income streams, you can also diversify your work life. There is no need to be bored with doing the same thing every day. Freelance work lets you choose the projects you want to work on and gives you a chance to flex your creative muscle.
With the structure of the business world changing, there is an opportunity to take control of your own career and create revenue in a new and exciting way.
