My job I currently have I relatively enjoy. There’s a lot of pros and like with any job there is the feeling of being trapped in a tightly woven blanket of security with a retirement and pension on the horizon.
My question is: is there any way to become a freelancer front end developer to boost my income and learn a new trade while also hedging against the fear of putting all my eggs in one “pension basket”?
In other words can I work when I want and how I want as a front end, or back end, web dev given I work as needed whenever a project comes around?
To be even more specific I work seasonally and love my off time but have picked up odd jobs to fill in gaps. Looking to have those gaps being filled with something more than another labor job, or whatnot, but not be tied to a company full time. So when the time comes for me to go back to my “Day Job” there’s really no issue.
