What growth means for freelancers

May 31, 2023

Joshua Toovey makes an excellent point on the IPSE blog that not every business wants to scale up. He quotes recent research that asked the British self-employed what growth means to them:

  • For 65% it means being able to charge higher day rates
  • For 61%, achieving greater profits year-on-year
  • For 60%, expanding their portfolio of clients
  • For 59%, higher turnover year-on-year
  • For 59%, personal development in knowledge and skills
  • For 42%, becoming more efficient in work
  • Only 15% of contractors viewed growth as becoming an employer

The article goes on to illustrate how out of touch UK government policy is with what the self-employed need to grow their businesses. Is it similar in the country where you are based as a freelancer?
