Whether you’re an artist, writer, designer or editor, freelancing from home is like the ultimate heaven. You can pick and choose the jobs you want from a multitude of contracting work. You can break for coffee when you want, watch Netflix, or even work in your birthday suit. But freelancing can quickly transform into the ultimate hell, if you’re not careful.
You, being the boss, can turn into a tyrannical power broker; piling on the work and accepting all jobs to the point of exhaustion. You can end up working longer hours than you did in your nine to five gig. Unshowered, unchanged and unshaven, you can lose touch with the outside world.
