Freelance Professionals: Opportunities Abound

Lately, I have been contemplating what I would want to do if I’d ever leave corporate america. My career started in consulting and auditing, and naturally moved toward governance and compliance. I do look forward to owning my own agenda and projects in which I work.

Over the past several years, me and my family have worked toward financial freedom, which has been our focus. As I completed my masters last year, what I have thought about more so was how I could perhaps become either a teacher, a writer or a freelance cyber professional. There are a few good sites out ther such as UpWork and WorkMarket which is owned by ADP. There seems to be lots of freelancers out there and these sites are made for them. There are plenty of project proposals from companies which mostly seem small-medium size businesses (SMBs) perhaps with a small budget. Also there are plenty of startups as well needing security consulting work as well.

Imagine the ability to work from anywhere, anytime. Due to work from home restricdtions, I have worked from my parent’s home a few times over the course of 2020 and 2021. The ability to visit and spend time with them has been really awesome and I cherish our time togehter. I hope this opportunity would be present going forward and knowledge workers can use Zoom, Microsoft Teams and video other collaborative platforms to get work done.

The future seems bright in regards to the opportunities available to knowledge professionals such as myself when it comes to remote work, and flexibility. I firmly believe this is the future of worker.
