Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

Please think about the value you get from this free site, and consider adding it to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on freelancingguide.net". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||freelancingguide.net^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

Online Freelancing Career Options

It’s possible that, after reading some of this introductory chapter, you’ve decided that you’re sold on the idea of becoming an online freelancer. In fact, you might be more than just convinced: you could well be excited about the idea. Some new freelancers find the freelancing waters so inviting that they are eager to dive in. But they really should restrain themselves: the water may not only be colder than it looks, there could be rocks lurking just below the surface that aren’t apparent upon casual inspection.

For most people, going straight to full-time online freelancing is not a good idea, because of the amount of work that’s required, and especially, the high degree of risk that this type of dramatic change entails. In this section I’ll discuss some more modest alternatives to going straight to full-time freelancer status, discussing how online work can complement either a regular job or regular freelancing. And yes, I’ll also talk about full-time online freelancing, and how, if you’ve decided to take the plunge, to avoid those rocks.
