Freelancing offers many benefits - but there are challenges too.
You get to be your own boss - but it can be lonely
You have control over finances - but that can involve dealing with red tape, and not being paid on time.
You can choose when and where to work - but that can get distracting.
You can be more productive - and everyday will be different.
You can have a better work/life balance - but remember to switch off.
Despite these challenges IPSE research shows freelancers love what they do.
