Burn-Out Busters for the Busy Freelancer
When Jerry (not his real name) became a freelancer, he was so excited because he thought that the flexibility and freedom to work from any location he chooses will reduce stress. He had worked for many years as a call center agent before taking that leap to online freelancing. He grew tired of the routine and thought that working from home would be the next best option.
He approached me, somewhat confused. “Why is freelancing as stressful as traditional employment?”
It made me think about my own life as a freelancer. At first, my initial reaction was that he was probably doing something wrong until I realized that he's suffering from burnout.
If I am not careful, it can happen to me too. In fact, it has happened to me before, but I learned a few things that helped me better manage stress and overcome burnout.
