I am actually finishing a book on this ("how to survive the first years as a freelancer"), in German, though. For the book, I am drawing on my own experience as well as interviews with 40 or so freelancers. So I know a bit on the topic.
Without knowing you or your background (experience, country, ...) it's impossible to give an answer that is particular to you. Maybe we could cover that in a personal call or so.
But here are some general questions you should ask yourself (basically the first chapter of my book):
- What's your motivation to move into freelancing? Independence? Flexibility? Money? Something else?
- Am I cut out for it? Mentally? Physically? Financially?
- Do I go at it alone or do I look for partners?
- What is your value proposition & USP?
- Where do my first projects come from? How do I find clients? How good is my network?
- How long can I pay the bills if I don't find a project?
- How do I develop my skills and grow personally and professionally if I am no longer part of an organization?
- What's my exit strategy?
After more than half a decade of freelancing, I can say that it is a very rewarding job, but also tougher than it looks from the outside. Classic case of "the grass is always greener on the other side".
If you've only worked for two years I would strongly recommend to NOT do it unless you have something really unique and are a star in many categories (consulting skills, sales, networking, among them). Your network is probably not yet strong enough to provide you with a steady flow of projects. Your experience so far does not allow you to credibly differentiate yourself. You are too junior to be taken seriously by senior management without the company that you are currently representing. That means you will end up (most likely) on poorly paid, uninteresting projects. Which is not rewarding, neither intellectually, nor financially. Or you will be 100% dependent on intermediaries like Comatch or Hays, which is the opposite of being really independent.
Happy to help if you want to know more.
