TABLE TOPICS 即兴演讲环节
Freelancing.It seems like the dream career, right? No boss, no fixed office hours, and working from any place of your choice. Well…while part of that is true, there’s more to the story. Like anything in life, freelancing has its own ups and downs.
We are living in a world where dynamism is the defining feature, which is particularly true given the COVID19 outbreak, which poses great challenge to both personal and professional success. Some have lost their jobs, others have chosen to leave their job to start a new one, still others are entertaining thoughts about working for themselves, or working for one different client at a time, or what we call, working freelance.
There are many luxuries that a freelancer can enjoy, like the flexibility of choice when it comes to whom or what projects to work for, the ability to control your lifestyle as well as the power to say No. Freelancing also comes with its drawbacks to be considered seriously, like the instability of cash flow, difficulty in maintaining long-term and trustworthy business relationships, more fierce competition and greater demand for innovative solutions.
Some people just prefer the stability and security that a regular job provides. Others prefer the flexibility and lifestyle that freelancing offers. But wouldn't it be a great idea to combine the two?
What about you? Do you have any personal experiences you’d like to share? Are you looking to transition into the freelancing frenzy? It’s a tough ride, but an enjoyable one too. We love to hear your thoughts during our Table Topics session.
