Freelancers are no longer hopeless romantics who dream about their freedom. They are passionate about their work and business, and they are successful solopreneurs.
Freelancers recognize the benefits they can give to the clients and are actively reaching out. Even more so now, as we discussed in our article Why progressive organisations are working with freelancers
, independent workers and solopreneurs are taking on big projects and striking long-term deals in the corporate world.
According to And Co, 70% of freelancers work on 2–4 projects at a time. This flexibility for the tasks and assignments freelancers can make prepares a fertile soil for the next phenomenon: the freelance collectives.
As covered in our article Grow your business by collaborating, not competing
, freelance collectives are in such a strong trend now, because the independent workers recognise greater benefits of these arrangements.
