If you work full time and you find your job daunting and unsatisfying, you are not alone in this as most young people in this day and age feel the same way however, the internet has opened up many opportunities for you to start working without having to be tied down by a full time job. Many young people are realizing that they can earn a lot more money from working freelance and working from home than they can with a full time job and in addition to this, working at home means a lot more freedom, no rules and also the ability to save on the expensive office clothes, the daily transportation and many more expenses that come with working from home.

Searching for work

Of course, to become a freelancer, you have to be good at something or you have to have qualification in something. Ideally, you will want to simply do the same thing or a related thing to what you do at your office so that you are in touch with the work and the knowledge. You can start on your freelancer job while you are working so that you are not under a lot of pressure to make a lot of money all at once because in the first few months, you will have to get used to it and find out how to get money and business. If you are good at technology, you can offer data recovery services to assure securing your files for small companies on a freelance basis in cases when their computers have been attacked by a virus and such. This is a very simple thing and anyone who deals with computers a lot will know how to handle a virus attack but some people, especially those of the previous generation do not and are willing to pay a lot of money for help in this area.

Similarly, you can also offer managed IT services to such companies as another service. You can do this work when you get home from work and therefore, you can do both your full time job and your freelance work.You will not have a lot of business at the beginning but as time goes by, you will notice that business will increase because people will start to speak about your services and recommend you and like this, your aim should be to increase your business until one day, you have an income equal or more to your full time salary so that you will be able to quit your job completely.
