    You paint an accurate picture of the pros and cons, Grant. Yes, there are negatives, but I’ve been freelance writing, editing and proofreading for 13 years now and can honestly say I’ve never been happier and more fulfilled. Unlike when I worked for big companies, I can now set my own structure and integrity, and, as you suggest, those are important.

    Hi Roxanne. Pros and cons across the board, indeed. Once you’ve tasted free(lance) air though, the cage just doesn’t cut it any longer. Thanks for your comment.

    Succint, to the point and more importantly, very true. The same principles apply to the solo business proprietor and entrepreneur as well.
