Telecommuting, strictly speaking, is not the same as freelancing. Telecommuters are employees but are able to perform their work at home, or anywhere else. Sometimes, telecommuters need to report to the office for meetings. Other times, not at all.
More and more companies are using telecommuting arrangements to save money otherwise spent on office maintenance, employ talent from out of town, and enjoy the other advantages that telecommuting offers.
Recently, I accepted a telecommuting position. At first, I was hesitant because I consider myself a freelancer 100%. But after much thought and prayer, I realized the opportunity met all the items on my “Yes” list.
