There Has Never Been a Better Time to Start Your Freelancing Career

As we all know, 2020 wasn't exactly a great year for many reasons. But how about we just make lemonade from all those lemons everyone got? Let's talk freelancing.

Sure, getting stuck at home and not being able to travel or socialize properly sucks big time. But it just gives us the right opportunity to rethink many aspects of our lives.

One of them could be starting a new career — online. A career without office. Without any bosses. Without the daily commute. Let’s finally live in the information age and ditch the old structures. After wasting countless hours on commuting, coworker arguments, and office drama, we surely deserve it.
