Ed Molyneux, CEO and co-founder of FreeAgent who said that whilst it was disappointing to hear freelancers are earning less than they once were, a recent survey found that the vast majority were more content with their work life balance.
The survey of more than 500 freelancers and micro-business owners carried out by FreeAgent found that a huge 74 per cent of respondents are content with their work life balance.
Ed Molyneux says:
“Those who decide to go it alone often do so in order to gain a more positive balance between work and their personal life. The majority find they are happier than they were when employed by somebody else.
That said, with self-employed people earning less than than they did twenty years ago, it’s never been more important to streamline processes, work efficiently and reduce admin time.
With the right tools in place to help ease the admin burden, freelancers can spend less time on the fiddly parts of running their finances and free up valuable time to concentrate on doing what they love – and invariably making a positive difference to their bottom line in the process.”
