What is Freelancing?
Freelancing is a type of work arrangement where an individual offers their services to clients on a project or contract basis, rather than working as a full-time employee for a single employer. Freelancers typically work independently and have the flexibility to choose their clients, projects, and schedule. They may work from home or from a shared workspace and may offer a variety of services, including writing, graphic design, programming, web development, consulting, and more. Freelancing allows individuals to use their skills and expertise to earn an income while enjoying the freedom and autonomy that comes with being self-employed.
