A new survey shows that more freelancers, who are working 9-to-5 gigs, plan to quit to work for themselves full-time in the near future. Brazen Careerist reports:

Of nearly 3,200 freelancers worldwide who were interviewed as part of the new study, “Millennials and the Future of Work,” 72% revealed that they’re keen to quit their 9-to-5 and strike out on their own. More than 60 percent said they’ll likely make that move within two years, citing a desire for freedom to pick and choose where and when they work.
