This is a work option which can get you extra income without interrupting your regular work schedule.
This is the reason why professionals, students and even housewives often turn to freelance work to utilize their free time to generate some extra money.
If freelance work is a way to earn some more money for people with regular occupations, it often is the only option for people who cannot get a regular job because of their age or circumstances which require them to remain at home such as people who have to care for their elderly parents or young children.
Unlike a part time job, freelance work doesn’t require you to put in fixed hours of work. You can do freelance work whenever you find time during your regular activities or after you have finished your day’s work at your regular job.
Per Project Payment
As freelancers are usually paid per project they know in advance what they will be paid when they have done the contracted work. In this way freelance work has a built-in incentive to finish as many projects as possible in a given period of time.
No need of physical presence
While you need to be physically present for doing part-time jobs such as a babysitter or an afternoon clerk at a convenience store or the cinema hall, you can do freelance work at your home.
