So precisely put. The part about people thinking of us as being free all the time is very disheartening but kind of funny at the same time. I’ve been a formal freelancer for about 2 years now (used to work in similar domains in a relative’s business for as long as I can remember) and I can almost totally relate & agree that’s the kind of life of most of freelancers.
But there’s one thing which doesn’t work for me (may be likewise for various other freelancers as well): Finding inspiration. I think it’s really important for a freelancer who works from home to stay motivated and inspired for which I don’t know what should be done. I guess travelling should be a must but what else do you think should one do?
