Do you want more freedom and flexibility, or a regular income every month? This is the choice you will have to make when choosing between working remotely as a freelancer or contractor.

You might be surprised to learn that when I quit my job of 24 years, the thought of contracting was not in my thoughts. Initially, my focus was on  freelancing for different companies while travelling.  It wasn’t until a friend reached out about an opportunity with a US company that I discovered how common this was. 

In this episode of  the Remote Hive Podcast, discover the difference between freelancers and contractors with the pros & cons.
