Freelancing is very common these days. Most of all wants to quit our full-time job and work on our own, where we are our own boss, we manage our own time and select anytype of jobs, we are comfortable with. Freelancing is not always easy and it requires a bit of flexibility, creativity, dedication and most of all, a good management.
