Have you ever woken up after an amazing weekend with a groan, asking yourself, “ugghhhhh why can’t I just work from home?” You’re certainly not alone, as many people question the same thing. There have, of course, always been risk factors prohibiting the average person from jumping in and working for herself. In the past, freelancing wasn’t really viewed as a “stable” career.
