It’s no secret that thousands of jobs exist within the digital sphere. There are countless ways to make money online, whether it be through YouTube, affiliate marketing, adult cam sites or freelancing.
Millennials were raised with the Internet. They acted as guinea pigs for its growth and now take part in its transformation. But older generations have yet to understand the benefits of becoming a digital professional.
Parents of millennials worked hard to bring up career-driven children. If your parents were like most Baby Boomers, they had high hopes for their offspring. Their hopes include graduating from a high-ranked university, pursuing a 9-to-5 job with a nice salary and spending the day in their very own cubicle.
Tides are changing, but many parents are finding difficult to let go of that idea. And it’s not just parents. Professors also mold students to be perfect candidates for the 40-hours lifestyle.
Although it might look a little different than what our parents had in mind, online work is more than just a career. It’s a lifestyle. Working online allows you to make money, live anywhere with reliable internet and achieve the freedom to live as you see fit.
It’s painful to listen to someone complain about their job. The idea that someone is unhappy at their job is commonplace in our society, it’s almost become a standard. But why should we accept a life that is no better than acceptable?
We shouldn’t and we don’t have to. Freelancing has allowed me to pilot my own life. A life where my efforts had a much greater influence on my success. A life where I decide how things will be done.
The life of a freelancer isn't for everybody, but neither is an office job. If you’re someone who craves independence and doesn’t want work to be the focus of your life, you should explore the idea of working online. Work should be the mechanism that powers your life.
