What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far. My stress levels are lower and the money is better. I have a few full time opportunities in the mix and I’m trying to gauge if I should go back to full-time or stick with freelance. For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?

I found it harder to consistently produce good work while freelancing so after a while my portfolio was getting old. I find 1.5 years the perfect amount of time to freelance before going full time again.

In the exact same boat. More money, less stress. Actually feel appreciate. But I’m especially tempted to take the full time offer because I was months away from buying my first home and that’s not gonna happen as easily with recently freelance employment.

Agree with ACD1. Freelancing kills your portfolio.

ill provide some counter perspective - freelance has filled my portfolio with much better work and diversity extremely quickly. i am lucky that ive been able to get cool gigs consistently though. when you naturally start double booking as contracts get extended and overlap, your income doubles and affording healthcare becomes no problem. Less stress as well as there's a bit of non-caring relaxed feeling generally because you don't have a career manager. sometimes bad gigs come but it's only temporary. freelancing has been the best decision ive ever made
