New York City is not the only hub for professional freelancers in the United States. As it turns out, there are several. Miami, in particular, is a hugely popular city for freelancers. Companies within Miami have cultivated freelancing for locals in order to strengthen their economy. As a result, the freelancing community in Miami is the largest it has ever been, and it just continues to grow.
The benefits of becoming a freelancer are numerous. Not only do you get to set your own rates and make your own schedule, you can also work remotely. Several freelancers are perfectly happy doing their work from the comfort of their own homes. However, many others state that a prominent issue facing freelancers is isolation. Working from home may sound like a dream come true, but creative burnout can happen when you are alone in your own space day after day, with no like-minded professionals off of which to bounce ideas.
