Did transitioning to freelance help anyone’s mental health? I’m dealing with bad management at my company and it’s taking a toll. Also finding that the 9-5 schedule causes me more stress that I expected.

I don’t know about today’s market. But in “normal-ish” times, yeah it’s nice to be separated from office politics. It’s nice to know that this assignment is 3-4 weeks (or whatever), and afterwards, you’ll have time off. But of course, looking for projects and getting booked is its own kind of stress. But I’ll say that it feels better when the stress relates to your business goals as a freelancer rather than getting stressed out helping omnicom reach their business goals.

I don't know of anyone that this has helped.

Yes completely. You’ll have to deal with the fact that you’ll probably make less money (but work less) and the anxiety of trying to find gigs—but it’s way easier to deal with the drama of agencies and treat work like just a job.

It depends on the day, honestly.

Now is not a good time to get into freelance, I would wait until the economy improves again. The market is really saturated.

If your current workplace or manager is causing you anxiety, I’d first try to see if you could work on another team or under a different manager. Chances are they don’t realize how stressed you are unless you bring it to their attention. If you can’t resolve these issues internally, look for another job before going freelance.

Thanks! It’s a small company so I can only work under the owner unfortunately.

Working with my manager gives me constant anxiety.

It’s not even working with a client. It’s that she is always able to demand more time from me for no extra pay
