No one knows exactly how many freelancers exist in the world, but there are at least tens of millions and the number is rising rapidly. Many, perhaps most, freelancers work online. Freelancing is the wave of the future. That’s a good thing because working for yourself gives you freedom and flexibility that you can’t find with traditional employment.
About World of Freelancers
My name is Sabina, and I created World of Freelancers for:
- people who are interested in working for themselves online as freelancers but don’t know how to get started
- current freelancers who are looking for additional types of online freelance work.
The mission of World of Freelancers is to help you discover how to work for yourself at a job you will love and achieve a healthy work/life balance so that you can live the life you want and deserve.
After freelancing as a court reporter, which allowed me to do much of my work at home, I wanted even more freedom plus I wanted to experience more of the world. In 2010 I decided to slow travel for a couple of years. I didn’t have two years’ worth of money saved, so it was really fortunate that earning money online was starting to become a thing at that time!
I started a travel blog and began earning income from that as well as by writing articles for print and online travel publications, editing, scoping and doing a bit of proofreading. During that time I traveled for a while primarily around the Middle East and Asia and then settled down for long periods in the UAE, Israel and Egypt.
It was while I was back in Israel to visit friends a few years later that I came up with the concept of World of Freelancers. I then traveled overland to visit friends in Egypt, where I bought the domain name one afternoon and got to work on the site. After arriving back in the U.S., I launched the site in March 2018. It’s been through a lot of changes since then!

You can read about some of my travels and get inspiration for becoming a traveling freelancer yourself on the World of Freelancers travel blog here. I’ll start publishing more travel posts there when travel becomes more of a thing again.
On World of Freelancers I use my own experience as a freelancer to help give you the motivation and confidence, inspiration and ideas you need to succeed at working for yourselves and living the life you want.
