The tech industry is facing a time of uncertainty, with waves of layoffs leaving many people seeking new career paths. In these uncertain times, freelancing is becoming a popular option for those looking to take control of their financial future. Freelancing offers the flexibility to work from anywhere, set your own hours, and be your own boss. Unlike working a 9-5 job, when you freelance you can have many clients at a time. If you get laid off from a full-time job, you don’t have any income. But if you freelance and one project ends, you have other clients and still have income.
Faith Storey and Jill Parkinson, who have freelanced as their only source of income for over three years, founded Only Freelance to help others learn this better way of working that brings schedule flexibility and control over your income.
Freelancing has become increasingly popular in recent years, and the trend is only set to continue. In 2022, 39% of U.S. workers freelanced. It’s projected that more than half of the U.S. workforce will be freelancing in the next five years. Individuals can diversify their income streams, work on projects that interest them, and enjoy the freedom of setting their own schedules when they freelance. This is particularly appealing for those in the tech industry who may be facing layoffs and seeking a new direction.
Faith and Jill understand the benefits of freelancing and have created Only Freelance to help others achieve the same success they have. Faith, a freelance growth marketer, grew her business to $200k within the first year of freelancing and made it to Upwork's expert-vetted program, the top 1% of all freelancers in the world. Jill, a freelance media planner, made six figures every year for the past three years through freelancing. They informally started helping their friends get their own clients, and realized how fulfilling it is to see others gain control of their schedules like they had done.
Only Freelance provides resources, including courses and ebooks, that help individuals make the transition from a 9-5 job to a successful freelancing career. With the tech industry facing challenges, freelancing is an exciting and smart option for those seeking stability and financial security. By providing the tools needed to become a successful freelancer, Only Freelance is helping individuals take the first step towards a fulfilling and successful freelance career.
