This is a WIP looking at freelancing from someone who works from home as a freelancer.
Taming the Freelance Market is a non-fiction book in progress by Robert Medak that will dispel some myths about freelancing, and will explain what if takes to be a productive entrepreneur in business working from home from someone on the inside working from a position of ethics and integrity.
Before I begin, according to WordWeb®, a program I use often:
Freelance used as a Verb:
Work independently and on temporary contracts rather than for a long-term employer
Freelance used as an Adjective:
Working for yourself
Freelance used as a Noun:
A writer or artist who sells services to different employers without a long-term contract with any of them
What does this mean in plain English?
It means, as a freelancer, it is up to you to keep impeccable records of income and expenses (record keeping for taxes), medical and dental insurance, marketing, Web design, anything related to business is up to you. Freelancers receive no befits from employers, because freelancers are considered independent contractors.
