1. Hi Sylvia, how long have you been working as a freelancer now?
Going into freelancing (and contracting) is something I never planned. It just crept up on me over the years when fulltime work started to be harder to come by due to a softer economy. I found that contracting had started to trend over permanent fulltime roles, and through contacts in my network and the marketplace, I was able to go for these opportunities. In return, the roles I worked in gave me flexibility and more work/life balance. This way, I was able to keep up with two of my passions: acting and writing fiction.
But to answer your question, I started freelancing/contracting since approximately 1996.
