– It's inspiring to experience the client's development with the expertise I contribute. On the other hand, it can be challenging to work alone often, so I actively nurture my network, says Roy.

Don't forget all the practicality

Roy had worked as an independent consultant before, so he knew what it was like to be a consultant and what to consider.

– Don't forget that many practical tasks come with being a freelancer; Everything from establishing a company, taking out insurance and planning a pension.

 

Development areas like a Scrum project

– I have thought of myself as an "agile product" and have defined myself in a Scrum Product backlog with a long list of development areas.

In this way, I hope it ensures that I'm always relevant in the market and can get the freelance tasks I enjoy working on the most, says the experienced digital consultant.
