As a freelancer, things can get really lonely.

Back when I was working from home, there would be times where I wouldn't leave my apartment for a few days, closed off from the rest of society.

When your commute consists of a flight of stairs and you can hop on a conference call without pants, lines can start to blur.

That's why reaching out to others is so important.

Just because you're a one-man/woman army doesn't mean you need to be alone.

Whether you want to collaborate with other freelancers or just grab a drink with new friends, don't forget to take some time to meet others.

Believe me, you'll thank yourself later.
