Pros and Cons of Going Freelance
« on: Mar 02, 2015, 09:48 PM »
Freelance jobs are more and more becoming a trend as technology becomes faster and more compact. But is working on a per-project-basis going to be good for you? So, what are really the pros and cons of going freelance?

Siyempre, there are more pros than cons.

no boss
no mrt problems
no dress code. or no dress at all!

Ako rin mas maraming pros vs cons.

- walang traffic, walang MRT, walang LRT
- mas productive, kasi yung time ng byahe, additional time to work
- walang uniform
- hawak sariling oras
- mas may time sa service (community)
- mas may time sa family
- mas hawak ko kung gaano kalaki salary ko
- walang boss, ako boss
- kahit saan pwede magwork

- nung una, akala sa bahay wala ako work, kaya utos dito, utos dyan
- walang officemates
- minsan tinatamaan ng procastination (hahaha)

Ako rin eto ang pros vs. cons ko

- kahit anong oras ako mag work pwede
- mas productive, kasi yung time ng byahe nakakawala ng energy (relate ba kayo  :rakenrol:)
- hawak sariling oras at unang gagawing work
-  may time sa family at friends at may chance maka help sa community (WOW)
- mas hawak ko kung gaano kalaki salary ko
- walang boss sarili ko ang boss ko walang kabang na baka magkamali
- kahit saan pwede akong magwork man o beaches (ganda ng view mas inspired magwork)

- nung una, akala sa bahay mabobored ako mag work palagi
- minsan tinatamaan ng procastination (same kami ni  innovativeva dito )

The are a lot people working online jobs in the Philippines already is this a good sign? Well working free lance jobs is good i think because you don't need to commute or dress in corporate attire.

- flexible working hours / time
- You handle your time / no boss to dictate what to do
- You can concentrate in your own workplace or in your house or anyplace you want to work
- No commuting everyday and avoiding traffic
- More time with family and friends

- No company benefits
- No assurance of work continuity
- No assurance of flow of income

Cons: You have to compute your own tax or hire an accountant. It can be optional, as a freelancer, but tax records are essential when acquiring bank or housing loans.

I agree with you. It is a trend nowadays. Most of the millennials nowadays tend to go freelance because of several reasons.
*Flexible schedule
*You can choose your clients
*no commuting costs
*Big potential profit

*no consistent work and cash flow
*feeling isolated
*the risk is all yours
