Why did you become a freelancer? Why did you ditch your 9-5? For me I wanted: freedom, flexibility, time to hangout with family and friends, and the ability to enjoy my life. I wanted to go hiking, biking, sitting on a patio, to exercise class, travel, or just sleep. I wanted to take back control over my life. And, I wanted to enjoy that mountain view whenever I could. So, I ask you what's your "why?" I'm sure it didn't include running around for 10 new bosses as a freelancer. That's why I started focusing on building affiliate income into my business.
