When beginning to draft this post, my goal was to compare freelancing vs having a full-time job. I was really excited with my method, mostly involving listing out the pros and cons of each. Easy. I got this.

They complete one another. Each challenge that you tackle while freelancing, returns to you as a skill set at your full-time job. Day to day tasks you hit at your full-time job return back to you as an invaluable experience for your freelancing projects.

In my experience, there is one thing that stays true for both freelancers and full-time designers — finding your True North. You will realize…
