Conclusion

No matter where you work, first you need to know well what you do. Then you'll get work faster and be able to be a good freelancer. So you are advised to focus on the learning. We want to earn as soon as we learn or while on getting training; this thinking is incorrect. We get a lot of trouble in getting a job worth of 1,500 US dollar after 16-18 years of study.

But, when we hear of outsourcing, we tend to thing to earn 20,000 in second month; we rush to them when we hear someone offering such this opportunity; but, the things that come easily, goes easily. But, in case of freelancing, you do not have to work 16-18 years, work, learn and focus on getting experience in the first year of your career, then earn money, gain experience and try to learn something new. The more you get work, the more increase in your earning.

Good luck to you.
