By the way, I am not painting the freelancer life as a “bed full of roses”. For sure, there are downsides to being a freelancer. Perhaps, one of these days, I’ll come up with another article when I have list down the many things I don’t like about freelancing. But then again, I choose to be positve. Why dwell on the negative?
