Why freelance - you want to be a freelancer? Working for yourself, setting your own schedule, and “being your own boss” can have its perks. The allure is so great that according to The Freelancers Union roughly 1 in 3 Americans is an independent worker and by 2020 Forbes estimates that 50% of the labor force will be too. But freelancing can also have its drawbacks....how do you get paid? What about taxes? Luckily, you don’t have to go it totally alone. Working with a digital and creative staffing agency like Artisan Talent can give you some of the support back that freelancers find missing when they give up the traditional 9-5 job.
