Only one in five freelancers say business is slow, despite credit crunch

 In a recent survey for Skillfair, 22% of freelancer feel business is worse, even dire this year. The credit crunch seems to make businesses more cautious about booking freelancers, with several respondants commenting that it is taking longer to get a decision on a new project.

However, if you are thinking of freelancing as a way to get the family friendly work life balance you need, don’t despair. 78% of freelancers say that business as good or better than last year. A small number, 14%, even said they were rushed off  their feet.
