Freelance Freedom

Page 34 of Freelancer Limited IPO prospectus for Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

I never regretted quitting my last full-time job 6 years ago to start freelancing full-time, and the journey has been wonderful. With nearly 15 years of experience as a Linux system administrator, today I serve clients from all of the world, straight from the comfort of my bedroom which I call my “mission control”. The nature of my work involves responding to emergency situations, and my physical location or time zone has never been a problem. All I need is a computing device and an Internet connection, and no matter where I am, I am able to serve my growing number of clients worldwide.

My freelancing career means a total freedom for me, with flexible and convenient work hours doing what I love to do. I can chose to work on projects that interest me, with clients whom I’m comfortable, and therefore never being bossed by anyone. Planning a vacation or attending a birthday party is never a problem, nor pursuing my hobbies such as photography or origami in my spare time, keeping me all happy and content. No suits and ties, no commuting, no office politics, just the love for what I do and getting paid handsomely for it. My freelance career means unbridled freedom, and I love being a freelancer!
