A growing number of Americans, especially Millennials, say they intend to become their own boss with the goal of flexible hours to make sure they don't miss their kids' activities.

They want to take charge of their work schedules and are willing to go solo to make it happen, according to USA Today.

When it comes to taking on a freelance role, 57% of workers say they're interested, up from 51% in 2017, according to the latest annual report.

Millennials were the most interested in contractual rather than full-time work, with 74% of those in that age group saying they were curious about freelancing, as compared to 57% of those who comprise Generation X and 43% of older Baby Boomers.
