Yes, and I recommend only committing to one freelance job until you figure out how much time it will take. They're all different & some more time-consuming than others. Overcommitting is a surefire way to burn yourself out super fast. I made that mistake before, so now I just have to make sure that I leave time to recharge.

I have, it’s hard to do especially with life.
It highly depends upon what your profession is and how much time it takes to do the work.

You then also have to factor in if you are being paid by the job or by the hour and if it is ultimately worth it.
I did make the mistake of taking on TOO many freelance things at once and burnt myself out. But if you balance it right it can be fun.

I do. I limit myself to no more than 5-10hrs of freelance work a week. Most of my clients pay by the month for a pre-established amount of work (create and schedule X social posts, X number of articles per week, etc). So long as you’re smart about how much you take on, it can be highly rewarding.

Great question

Yeah but only because working full time right now from home doing some p basic customer service stuff so I have time in between to work on freelance. If I had to fully be at work /only concentrating on that I don’t think I could

Oh yes, it is more of a need for me though. I have a ton of student loans and built up debt from when I was laid off for three months
