    The experience can lead to a broad portfolio of work and the establishment of a network of clients. But what about the time taken for this broad portfolio of work and network expansion? It is not month’s timeline. Those who are in only one field, takes years and years to have complete knowledge of end to end process of their field. Being freelancer, no substantial knowledge could be gained in short time. Additionally, there is no stability in career. By the time one become expert freelancer, one may be in retiring age with no enthusiasm to go extra. When one sees back in life, there may not be anything special at all. No one wants to be in retirement state as Jack of all, master of none. The bigger threat to freelancer is uncertainty of the work and lack of regular income. It can be a real problematic situation to freelancer. It only invites additional stress and if not managed properly, could lead to downward spiral of life.
