If you have been in the job market in Kenya for some time then you must have tried or at the very least come across people persuading you to try out freelancing. A freelancer is a self-employed individual who doesn’t have to commit to a single, long-term employer. Instead, they work independently for several different companies or clients. Freelancing is the act of doing freelancing jobs.
The freelance economy otherwise referred to as the gig economy has been growing exponentially in the past years globally. In Kenya the situation has not been any different as research shows millennials and Gen Z’ers prefer working from a remote location instead of having to report to the office for the freedom that comes with it to do other side hustles.
