Can a data scientist be a freelancer?

Data scientist can definitely work as a freelancer; however, in order to crack a deal, it is important for the individual to have a good repository of projects in his/her GitHub account so that they can be used as proof of concept. In order to enrol as a freelancer, the candidate needs to register in a freelancing portal such as freelancer.com or Upwork and build a proper profile.
Once done, the individual needs to bid for projects which may seem doable and submit the proposal for the same. The bid would then compete against thousand other bids; and then a single bid would be selected by the project sponsor.
