I have actually never worked as a freelancer, and yet have worked mostly remotely for over 10 years.
The key is to find a job you like, that you are suited for, with an employer who is amenable to flexible working arrangements. Find the job first, then enquire about alternative benefits, like slightly reduced pay for working at home.
