Freelancing seems like a dream come true for those who hate the daily grind of a corporate job, especially when you get to work from home or a nice café, plan your own schedule and be free from office politics.
However, being a freelancer comes with its own set of challenges. You will have to proactively pitch ideas, be your own HR and admin person, organise your accounts and chase for late payments all while trying to keep a healthy work-life balance.
It may sound overwhelming, but you can take a load off your mind by making sure that you have a solid financial plan in place. Not sure what that entails? Michelle Ngiam from Great Eastern Financial Advisers tells you how you should go about managing your money as a freelancer.
