Have you been thinking about making the jump to freelancing for the last few years but are a little scared of what might happen if you do?
If this is you, we completely understand but our advice would be.........Take The Jump, the waters lovely and warm!
All of the benefits that you currently get with your employer can be set-up through your own company; private medical insurance, income protection insurance, life insurance, critical illness cover and a whole lot more.
You might think that freelancing is much more risky than having a permanent job, the problem is how permanent is permanent? You could be made redundant relatively easily and then you have no work until you find a new employer. As a freelance contractor you may have several clients that you work for at the same time, loose one of them and you still have the others. Many freelancers tell us that they actually feel more secure than they did before with their permanent employer. They also say they feel empowered and like they have taken control of the lives. They choose the hours to work, their pay rate, who they want to work for, what projects they want to focus on and they don't have to deal with any kind of office politics.
Freelance contracting is not for everyone but if you have been thinking about making the jump for a while then why not give us a call? Tell us your situation, your concerns, what has stopped you doing it until now and we will take you through the pros and cons for your specific situation. Totally free and with no obligation, if we feel from our experience freelancing is not right for you we will tell you and we'll tell you what you could do to make it a much better option in the future.
