Choosing to work for yourself as a contractor, freelancer or consultant comes with a host of benefits. In fact, ask any contractor what their favourite thing is about being self-employed and they’re likely to say ‘the work/life balance’, ‘the freedom’ or ‘being my own boss’. Maybe even all three! However, without having teams or colleagues you can delegate tasks to, it is very easy to take on too much. From chasing invoices, finding new clients, advertising yourself and even doing your accounts; when you work for yourself, you have to look after most aspects of your business yourself.
