My Xero guest blog post – Going Freelance

I’ve been guest blogging with the guys at Xero online accounting, talking about how becoming a freelancer has put me in control of my life and my numbers.

I’ve been working as a freelancer for nearly six years now – and it’s a career move that’s changed the way I balance work against the rest of my life. As someone who came from a very corporate background, I was used to the idea of a regular salary, company benefits and the security of being an employee in a big organisation.

  • Work with a real variety of interesting clients
  • Manage my income and finances more directly.
