Freelancers choose freelancing as a lifestyle choice in which there’s no boss, a flexible schedule and can more easily blend their daily activities around their work schedule. It’s a freeing lifestyle but freedom can also mean loose and chaotic. Freelancers are not given the standard three weeks paid vacation and sick days that many traditional workers enjoy. It often means that freelancers aggressively save up the month before a vacation to make sure they can pay their rent, cell phone, and loans while they are away. Some opt to rack up credit card debt to cover expenses, but many freelancers just never take a week or two long vacation in fear of losing too many billable hours.
