It's a difficult decision to make: do you keep your nice comfy office job or switch to a freelance career and work from home? Most of us love the idea of being our own boss, making our own schedule, and getting paid for doing work we love. However, if a redical shift in employment makes you nervous, try transitioning into the freelancing world by taking on freelance jobs while you are still employed by a company. It's extra work, but you'll build a good reputation and a client base that can sustain you once you decide to take the plunge into full-time freelancing.
