See, it’s phrasing like this that is troublesome:
“If you have previous experience freelancing or running your own business…”
Freelancing IS running your own business. It’s not an or; it’s the same thing.
Phrasing like that makes people think it’s something different and separate, which is incorrect.
That’s why we have so many people in the industry who don’t realize that they are not employees, that they are running their own business, that it IS up to them to set the contracts and dictate the rules, etc.
It’s also why you should never use the term “freelancer.” Because it gives everyone the wrong idea all the way around.
