The Truth About Freelancing: Busting Common Misconceptions

What is Freelancing? Common misconceptions

Freelancing means free lunch 😂😂😅😅
Freelancing, freelancer refers to a person who is self-employed and not necessarily committed long-term to a particular employer. In other words, to become a freelancer, you have to work online, not according to the above definition, but in different countries including Bangladesh, freelancer means a person who works online.
What exactly is freelancing? Is it free money? Or something that anyone can easily do? Let’s start with a fact:
If you go to a doctor for checkup but found out that his certificate was fake or went to a mechanic and found out that he doesn’t know how to work, now how much will you trust him to treat or give work? If I were you, I would stay ten miles away.

This time you apply the same logic to the freelancing sector; The rules of the online world are real, It is not mars or different planet where the money will double in 25 days or some crap.

Any client wants to hire the most skilled person for his project. So which one does he choose? 6 months apprentice or many years experienced worker?

Here you can say that, many people get work in 6-10 months, how do they get it? Don’t get me wrong, I can work hard and land a gig in 5-6 month or but you can’t earn 1 lac Taka or 1000 Dollar per month in such short time as many TV channels and training centers are promoting.

This is called False Advertising. Headlines such as “Women millionaire with baby in hand with laptop and internet connection” are often seen. How true is this news? You can get the real deal by asking any experienced freelancer.
These days there are some training centers that teach freelancing courses but can’t do it themselves. There are also some people who join these courses who are not taught any work and if they are taught anything, they are not freelancing by any means.
All these organizations give them a referral system, where they admit others and get money, hey they say this is freelancing, Happy Freelancing. Hey brother, open your eyes, they can’t see how they are deceiving you and your acquaintances.


Finally, some people will say that working in this sector is very easy, Ah yes!!! it is so easy that millions of people come every year but few survive.

After all this discussion we know it is too easy to get work; even you don't need to try. Can you imagine, if it was difficult to work in this sector then the situation would have worsened.
