A lot of programmers dream about becoming freelancers. Wouldn't it be awesome to not have a boss that tells you what to do and to have flexibility in your work? Work on your underwears, in your home, anytime you want?

Well... Maybe... But this dream fantasy that people sell you is usually not what happens. Yes, of course, these are some benefits of becoming a freelancer, but there are also a lot of downsides to this choice.

For example, let's take the money. When you're in a company, you get your salary each month PLUS some benefits, such as food, and other stuff your company might have agreed to support you. When you're a freelancer, all these expenses need to be covered by you... So, you would be losing money if you actually charged the same thing.

In this video, I'll explain if you're ready to make this transition to becoming a freelancer software developer and what are the things you should take into consideration when it comes to becoming a successful freelancer.
