Excellent article David. I love running my own freelance business for many of the same reasons. As you pointed out, it takes someone with self-motivation and discipline to be a successful freelancer. Some people work better under direction and get overwhelmed by the responsibility of the freedom working for yourself can bring. But if it’s right for you, there’s nothing better. I wouldn’t dream of ever looking for employment.
