How To Get A Job As A Remote Programmer?

When I was working a regular 9-to-5 job, I’d often fantasize about starting my own business––working for myself.

I’d think about how nice it would be to be a freelancer and not have a boss. I’d daydream about traveling the world, working whatever hours I pleased, and making hoards of money from lucrative contracts.

Then I’d snap to reality as I realized I had no idea how to go about making something like this happen. I mean, how do you actually become a freelancer and work for yourself?

This is the dream of most software developers. Most of them fantasize about working for themselves, just to start freelancing and discover that things do not work 100% like that.

The first question you should ask yourself is if you are sure whether or not you really want to embark upon this path.

Don’t get me wrong; I want you to become an entrepreneur of sorts.

I want you to eventually stop working for “the man” and find your path to freedom.

But freedom is not for everyone.

The reality is that it is going to take a large amount of work to even get to the point where the dream is a reality.
