Whether you’re planning on quitting your 9-5 to travel the world or just want something on the side to help pay off your student loans, freelancing (and other remote work) is worth looking into. It’s a big leap for many people, venturing out on your own, “being your own boss,” and leaving stability, but it certainly can pay off. Starting is the hardest part. You need to determine what your skill set is, build up a portfolio, and/or a base of clients. These sites will help you do just that.
