Today, in Spain, working self employed is something that is growing in popularity. Many professionals are seeing this option as a good solution to the terrible economic recession that Spain has endured. Being freelance or self employed is something quite common today and even envied by many because, despite being a bit dangerous or uncertain at the beginning, the truth is that it has excellent perks such as working for one self or being able to organise one’s own time.
Perhaps one of the negative points about being self employed was where to actually work. Most self-employed people work at home but many realised that this was not positive and that it had some annoying problems. The main problem was the lack of interaction with people, something that you can enjoy in an office but not working alone at home. Another was the timetable: when you work at home for yourself, it is true that you are in charge of the time but this also means that you can be working late into the never-ending evening, since your “office” is just a few steps away from the bedroom, the living room, etc. And lastly, where to receive your clients? That’s another problem to take into account.
