Frankly, telling lots of people don’t understand the actual meaning of freelancers, they think that you work from your home in your pajamas. But as we all know that it’s only half definition.

The word freelancer is short by its nature but has a very long definition. You can’t assume that people will get the idea about what you do if you just tell him that you work as freelancers.

      That is completely true. People who have tried Freelancing are the only ones that can describe how it goes. Some of the people's ideas are misguided, some actually think that it is the easiest job in the world because freelancers work at home. But that couldn't be farther from the truth. Freelancing just like any other job, it needs to be done correctly but a lot harder when it comes to finding motivation to get the job done.

      It's much harder to be our own boss than everyone might think.

    • Ashish

      awesome article.. need to use the tips.. next time… 😛

    • Akash Shastri

      This is a cool article. Next time if someone asks me about my profession I gonna use this techniques of answering.

    • Imran Soudagar

      But I just prefer telling that I am a student and I work part time. They ask me how much I earn, when they hear how much I earn I love the reaction on peoples face. The jaw dropping moment. I love it.

    • Christopher

      When you say you are an "Entrepreneur" to anyone they will hear it as "Unemployed"..lol… its India! Nice post!

    • Goa Trip


      I want to say only this thing we should do work like that every one know us if any other person is facing some problem in his work then other person come to him and say to him this work will do that person.

    • DJ

      good article !

      it's better to say "Jobless" lol kidding ! 😀

    • Adeline

      This was a really fun article and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. (including the comments 🙂 Umashankar… ure a riot!

      But seriously, this is not just something Indian. In fact, Darren Rowse, in his book 31 days to better blogging calls this the elevator pitch. When someone asks you " Thambi yena tan panringa ???" … in the time that it takes for an elevator to ride, you should be able to convey what you do in a manner that intrigues and has them coming back for more.

      Thanks Romy for a fun Friday read.. I've been reading too much serious tech stuff this week, and this one is a welcome change.

    • Novo Siena

      Good job Romy!! Thanks for posting!

    • Eapen

      Nice post mate ! All these helps you promote yourself as a brand and builds reputation amongst others. Good read.

    • umashankar

      Thambi yena tan panringa ???

    • Sagar

      This question arises many a times, all I can say is Thanks 🙂

    • Sarvesh Darak

      Even if we explain all this .. they will still feel that we're jobless … that is Indian mentality 🙂

      • Romy Singh

        Very Funny Sarvesh.. Remember somehow we all get near to opportunities but only sensible take advantage to them….

      • Jose Tinto

        That's right. In India the ultimate aim of education is getting a job.

        • Romy Singh

          Hello Jose,

          This aim is set by our mom and dad, that if you are good at studies then you will get a good job & good wife also (LOLzzz) and also good salary….

          somebody tell my mom&dad that there are lots of rich people who don't knows that ABC and running huge companies so their is no relation in success and studies. studies only help us to understand every situation clearly and effectively that's it…

      • Jose Tinto

        That's right. In India the ultimate aim of education is a 9-5 job.
