You’ve thought about making the jump to freelancing full-time, but there’s always something that holds you back.

Perhaps you’re unsure if you can support yourself solely by freelancing. Maybe you’re afraid to fail. For many people though, it’s not so much a question of if they’ll take the leap, but when.

But how do you know if you’re truly ready to say goodbye to your day job and dive in to the exhilarating world of freelancing?

If you find yourself agreeing with these 4 glaring signs, you might need to finally take the freelance leap.

“You honestly don’t want to live an “average” life

Some people work the same job their entire lives. We all know one or two. Twenty years in with the company, a nice pension, security, stability. That’s cool. If they are 100% genuinely happy with the life they live, more power to them! I however, am not this person.

For a creative like myself, I want to explore. I want to try new things. I want my potential to have no limits. I worked to design my entire life around those goals. I want to be able to travel, to meet so many people that come so uniquely into my life. I want everyday to be something different and I never want to stop learning.”
