18 Tweets that Show What #FreelanceLife is Really Like4 min read

There’s one thing that all those who have never freelanced seem to have in common… their incredible ability to romanticize the freelance lifestyle.

They imagine that ‘freelance’ equates to complete freedom – from office life, long hours, and stress. They mistake ‘working remotely’ for ‘working with the TV remote in hand’. And to them, ‘working from home’ simply means you’ll have plenty of time to get things done around the house.

Reality check: real life freelancing is not like this. And the freelancers of Twitter are not afraid to let you know what it’s actually like.

Here are 18 tweets that give you a glimpse into the life of a freelancer.  

We’re (usually) fully clothed

Freelancing takes a lot of self-motivation

The work isn’t always steady

And neither are the paychecks

Sometimes clients think ‘freelance’ means the work is free

There’s no rest for the freelancer

Freelancing comes with some unique problems

 Like having to suddenly learn about stuff like taxes

But we’re here to make some of that stuff easier

See what we’re all about here. Or tweet us about your #FreelanceLife @andco.
