Client vs Employer
When you work in an office, you have an employer. This is a person who loads you with all different kinds of work, controls and pays your salary.
Regular employee receives a fixed salary that does not depend or represent an actual workload. Does not sound really motivating, does it? You can be working harder than your colleagues and be more efficient than anybody else, but the difference in salary would be only several hundreds dollars.
You will ask me: “What about annual bonuses and health insurance?”
But now ask yourself this question: “Is it even worth it?”
Client is a person with a problem that needs to be solved. You will need to find out what a client needs to do, agree with him on terms and assignment requirements, complete a task and receive your reward.
If you are an introvert by nature, you might find it difficult to freelance. Try looking for remote work opportunities instead.
