Freelance Expanse: 10 Ways to Work Outside the Home In London

Being a stay-at-home freelancer in London isn’t easy. Sure, you get to work in your bathrobe and there’s no one constantly looking over your shoulder to make sure you aren’t watching cat videos on YouTube, but it lacks both variety and a social aspect. It can also be a drag when you don’t have the pleasure of going home after work, simply because you’re already there.

 

Here are 10 tips to enhance your freelance lifestyle when your small flat or house-share is starting to feel like a prison of your own making.

 

1. Work in the park

If the weather is right and you’ve got offline work to do or access to the Internet via a USB modem, there’s no better place to earn a few pounds, euros, or dollars than one of London’s many green spaces. Make sure you’ve got ample battery life and you’re good to go.

2. Make the café your office

Many cafés offer free WiFi, comfy chairs, and tolerance to the freelancer who orders one coffee during a 5-hour work stint. Plus, there are always sandwiches available when you get hungry. Stake out a table that’s close to a power point, get your frequent buyer card stamped, and start earning.

3. Make the pub your office

Pubs and bars offer many of the benefits of cafés plus the advantage of staying open much later (though they can get really noisy). Beware of the drinks, however. Unless you’re Hemingway, you might want to stop at one or two.

4. Rent an office

Miss that dedicated work space that only an office can provide? Why not rent? You might even start to feel like you have a real job.

 

5. Rent a desk

Hiring a desk or desk space in an office share can create the feeling of community that is lacking in the life of a stay-at-home freelancer. Some offices may also rent desks by the day or hour so you can mix it up by working in the park on Monday, in the pub on Wednesday, and at desk in an open plan office on Friday.

 

6. Get a floating office

Some pretty nice boats can be had starting at just a few thousand pounds. Sites like Apollo Duck sell canal boats built for living on and cruising the British waterways. Provided you know what you’re doing and are prepared to meet all the costs and upkeep, a London boat-office might be just your thing.

7. Take a workation

Sick of the rain, smog, and constant traffic noise? Want to get away, but still need to earn enough to pay the bills? Pack up and head for somewhere warm and cheap with reliable Internet access. If you’re lucky, your freelance workation may end up paying for itself.

8. Work at a friend’s place

Other freelancer friends, friends with lonely pets, friends on vacation-- someone’s bound to let you occasionally use their place as an impromptu office. Don’t be afraid to ask!

 

9. Take advantage of The Cloud

Being a member of The Cloud means you have access to WiFi hotspots all over London in cafés, restaurants, transport stations, and trains. Some Sky broadband services now include free access to thousands of UK WiFi Cloud hotspots.

 

10. Try freelance temping

Take a break from not having a boss and look for a temporary freelance contract at a company. There are loads of temporary freelance opportunities out there and some of them pay quite well. You’ll also feel grateful and relieved when your contract is up and you can return to working in your pyjamas.
