True Love - - CONTENTS -

More and more women are con­sid­er­ing ditch­ing full-time em­ploy­ment for the ben­e­fits that come with free­lance work. The lure is be­com­ing your own boss and to de­ter­mine your in­come stream. In other words, you can work when­ever and wher­ever you want, un­like the re­stric­tive 9-5 life of a cor­po­rate pro­fes­sional. Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent re­port by The South­ern African Free­lancers’ As­so­ci­a­tion, 67% of women dom­i­nate the free­lance me­dia sec­tor. Cur­rently, cre­ative in­dus­tries like com­mu­ni­ca­tions, me­dia, arts and de­sign are lead­ing the way in the global “gig econ­omy”.
