To Freelance is the Future

The number of freelancers is on the rise in different countries. And as I delve deeper into freelancing, the reasons for this increase are getting clearer by the day. In fact, the potential for freelancers is immense and I’m really glad that people, especially the creatives, are taking advantage of it. If you’re reading this, you’re probably a freelancer or you intend to freelance. Maybe you have even hired a couple to help you out in your business. You’ll see that they are proving themselves to be an indispensible part of the industry.

Here are some of the reasons why freelancing is the future of work.

 

Search for better income

This is where most freelancers start. The desire to find a way to augment their income pushes them to find “side hustles” they can engage in after their 9-to-5 jobs. The reason is simple: their salaries are not enough to cater for their needs or the needs of their family.

Those who turn to freelancing have been able to raise their income level even higher than what they were earning in their 9-to-5. Well known freelancers have been able to rake in millions every year through freelancing alone. That is something they could never have imagined they could achieve through their 9-to-5 jobs.

 

Freelancers take up gigs that reflect their passions

The gigs freelancers go for reflect their interests and hobbies. Doing something they love makes them enjoy the work they do. Thus, their side hustles turn to their passion project and a means to escape their dreadful jobs. This means that they are more productive and deliver quality services.  They carry this passion and enjoyment with them even after they leave their 9-to-5 to dedicate more time to build a business on what they love doing the most.

 

Freelance to experience a life of freedom

Freelancing gives people the opportunity to quit their jobs and start off as owners of their own businesses.  As business owners, these freelancers get to enjoy unlimited freedom in their lives. No need to wake up early to rush to work. Having to endure hours of long commute or crazy weather conditions would be a thing of the past. No need to deal with office politics. They are in charge of their own time, the clients they work with and how much money they can make.

Freelance gives job security

The immergence of artificial intelligence (AI) has been giving a lot of workers concerns. Many believe that the presence of AI means that they are faced with the threat of losing their jobs.

The good news is that freelancers are not at risk of the presence of AI. Freelancers don’t only offer services, they build business relationships and influence in their niche. This is something that AI can’t achieve.

 

Assurance of quality service

Most people working in offices today are doing those jobs mainly out of necessity and not many of them enjoy the work that they do. Freelancers on the other hand love their job. Their love for what they do shows in the quality of their work.

Their passion drives them to ensure that their clients are given the best. Freelancers work faster, smarter and are more resourceful and innovative than those working in a 9-to-5. They believe in ensuring maximum satisfaction and not merely living from paycheck to paycheck.

How to Care for Nails this Winter

In the beginning of the winter I noticed something was wrong with how my nails looked and felt.  They were dry and very brittle. I initially thought it was my skincare causing this, but it wasn’t! After some research I found out that the chilly weather played a major role in the state of my nails. So I decided to look up ways on how to care for nails.

Healthy nails contain water. What the chilly weather does is to reduce the level of water in our nails when you constantly move from the warmth of your house to the cold outside. Since the time I discovered the culprit, I have been experimenting with the aim of finding the right measures to protect my nails this winter and restore them to their healthy state. I was able to narrow down the hacks that worked to the 2 most effective ones.

I love these hacks because they focus on solving the core problems – lack of moisture. They are really easy to follow and the results are almost immediate. Here are 2 really great hacks that I found to be effective.

 

Intensify the use of moisturizers

Since the major reason why your nails don’t look so good during the winter is the lack of moisture, then this winter you should make moisturizer your best friend.

I know that there have been times when I caught myself moisturizing only once or twice a day but since the nail incident, I became committed to applying moisturizer regularly. Hand creams are now my friends! I am never without one.

Take a generous amount of hand cream and apply on your hands. Gently massage it in, working the moisturizer in your nails and cuticles.

Also don’t wait until your hands become very dry before you apply a moisturizer. Apply it as often as you can.

Care for nails with a hydrating treatment

Another great way to care for nails this season is by giving your nails a hydrating treatment. This treatment is something that you can do at home. It’s really easy and your nails will thank you for it. I must warn you that this hack may seem a little strange but I’m asking you to trust me on this one.

 

Steps

Get a bowl of warm water. The bowl should be big enough for you to keep both your hands in. Dip your hands into the bowl of water and allow your hands to sit there for 10 minutes. That gives it enough time for your nails and cuticles to soak in the water.

The next thing you do is to take some Vaseline and apply it on your nails and cuticles. Gently work in the Vaseline on your nails and cuticles.

After applying the Vaseline, grab your gloves and put them on. It’s better to go for cotton gloves as they will help your nails keep the moisture in. Leave the gloves on for about an hour and remove them.

I now do this treatment every night before going to bed. It’s pretty effective. Your hands and nails will look amazing. They’ll feel stronger and look healthier.

Socks – Winter Must-have Accessory

Socks are winter’s must-have accessory and they play a massive role in our final look. Not many people give any thought to the type of socks they wear or whether they should wear any socks in the first place. Well, this humble clothing item is now gaining greater relevance in the world of fashion, especially in the autumn/winter months.

Who would have thought socks could be fashionable? You think people hardly notice them, but if you’re fashion conscious, then they are as important as the type of shoes you wear or the handbag you carry.

Big fashion brands know the powerful role socks play in the world of fashion. So they invest a lot in socks that bear their brand name and creative designs.

For as long as I can remember, fashion designers have been passing the message that socks have the potential of being the game changers in fashion. In fact, they have been featuring all sorts of socks on the runway.

Socks of all colours, patterns and sizes add depth and meaning to outfits in a way that most people overlook. Now almost every well-known brand has their signature socks that you can choose from.

There are so many reasons why socks are a must-have accessory, but here are a few that are really crucial.

 

Socks turned into an outlet for intense creativity

The sky is the limit when it comes to finding the most suitable pair to suit an outfit. Fashion designers were able to show the world that there’s no outfit a pair of socks can’t accompany. We’ve seen socks go with dresses, compliment flats and heels and there is nothing socks have not been paired with.

Aside from enhancing creativity with socks and outfit combinations, the colours, patterns and textures of socks have been quite creative. More people are embracing bolder designs and socks are no longer relegated to just something to wear with sport shoes.

I always say that the outfit you wear is your way of expressing your personality, mood or character. Socks, just like every other clothing item can be used as a medium of expression. This is the side of socks that people have shown a lot of keen interest in.

 

Socks are a means of spreading a message

Remember how we recognize and feel the impact of slogan tees? Socks have been able to be a way for people to pass a message or simply make people laugh. You have socks that carry words conspicuous for others to see. Just like that the unsaid words are spoken through our socks.

 

Wearing socks are in vogue

This is one of the major reasons why you should start styling your outfits with an awesome pair of socks. I witnessed an era where wearing socks in your sandals was thought of as strange and unusual, but now even this taboo has been debunked. And I am loving it!

If you’re fashion conscious and you want to make sure that you are following the trends, then now is the time to grab a pair of comfy socks. Plus it is so chilly now so make the most ofd it. Nothing like slipping your trainers off to show off cool set of socks right?
