Ive been doing call center work & I absolutely hate it. I hate answering to people, being treated like ****, and being constricted to a 9-5 schedule. I am currently in school for an accounting degree but my passion is my art & I would like to start that type of business. I feel as if I am not making as much as I want to.

I'm thinking of doing independent contracting gigs where I can choose my schedule instead of being fully confined. Would this be a bad idea?
