Hi all, hope everyone is having a good day Smile | :)

I was wondering, is there anyone on here that does freelance work so that they can work very little?

I'm somewhat sick and tired of working for a company and having to show committment - I am not very good at drawing a clear line to separate work and life and I am also not very good at pushing to do mainly stuff I enjoy at work. So, lately I've been toying with the idea of dropping my day job and get my freedom back to define exactly how many days a week I want to work for money and how many days I want to just code, or just be with my kids or help out my local community.

But I'm not sure this is actually doable, without starving!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Smile | :)

Nicole
