Review: Today Dani Wright writes in the NZ Herald about the benefits and pitfalls of freelancing and contracting from home. The benefits of working for an employer (at their place of work) include “security, social connection, and regular salary.” For freelancer Dani Wright, “I’ve found the best things have been the variety of work, the better pay and the ability to be more connected to my family life.”
Freelance PR consultant Lindsay Stanley admits “to missing out on chatting to colleagues because she is working from home, but when she feels the need to be around others, she books herself into a co-working space, such as Bizdojo in Takapuna, to help her feel more social.”
