Becoming a digital marketing freelancer has been a life-changing decision for me. My story could become yours too!!
I have been freelancing for the past five years and one question that I face quite often is – can I do it too? I know of a lot of people out there who wish to give up their regular 9 to 5 job and get into something that will give them more flexibility, a better work-life balance and of course, an assured income every month. A lot of my female friends/ex-colleagues left their jobs for various personal reasons (motherhood being on the top list for most of them) and would like to get back to work where they can put their experience and skills to use. However, a full-time employment is something that most of them wish to avoid.
Are ‘Work From Home’ Options Genuine?
I’m sure a lot of you out there must have been disappointed with the kind of results that comes up while searching for “Work from Home” options in Google. Most of them look suspicious, fake or like a scam. Also, when you search for “work from home+India”, mostly you come across jobs that are low paying, require data entry, filling up of forms or the like….There are many freelance writing jobs too, but if you don’t have a flair or enjoy writing, there isn’t much that you can do about it!
5 years back, I was in the same situation, wanting to get out of the usual cycle that we get caught up with in the corporate world – minimum 8 hours at the office, 2 hours in the traffic, changing jobs every few years, annual appraisals…..you know the list! It’s not that everybody I know of wishes to give up their corporate jobs and take up freelancing. In fact, many of my friends are very happy with their jobs and doing really great, as they move up the corporate ladder!
It’s just that I personally wished for more flexibility in terms of scheduling my work, especially after my two kids. Like for me, I start my work early in the morning, working from 5-6.30, again from 9.30 to 12.30 pm and in the evening from 5.30 to 7. And, I know that a lot of you out there wish for the same kind of flexibility. And, that’s the reason behind this blog!
But, my story is just one among thousands of success stories (in fact, a lot more successful than mine). And this is what I wish to share with my Blog. I started my freelance career as a digital marketer owing to my background in Sales and Marketing but have fallen totally I love with digital marketing, the huge opportunities it has opened for individuals like me and the immense growth potential in the long run.
