If you're thinking about quitting your job to pursue freelancing full-time, consider Andys wise words: "The amount of savings you have is the amount of time you can afford before you have to look for a job again."

In today's episode of My Freelance Life we answer a few critical questions that have come up as Andy has pursued his unique new career as a freelancer. We discuss how sick days—or vacation days—can impact you as a freelancer, how much money you should have saved before you quit your job, and lots more.
