Many times it’s difficult to get a truly accurate account of someone else’s experience freelancing. The fact of that matter is that it’s different for everybody. Sure many freelancers have similar work-related backgrounds and experiences that did their part in leading to freelancing, but it’s hard to remind yourself that your circumstances are very specific at the same time. Reading articles like this can be a great inspiration but it’s also important to remain realistic. This piece does a good job of that in outlining a responsible way of handling a freelancer’s income, which at first can seem abundant. Until you have to deal with the tax man. What I like a lot about this article is that it discusses more than the financial advantages to freelancing. Time is of the essence and Mike is taking advantage of that in a great way. Good stuff worth reading.
