Before you become a full-time freelancer

While being a freelancer brings certain benefits, working for yourself also comes with a unique set of challenges. So before you quit your full-time job and go it on your own, consider these three perspectives.

Retirement may give you the freedom to write a novel or exercise your green thumb, but it does not mean you have to stop working altogether.
