The answer is…it depends.
I know freelancers who spend far more time on their freelancing business than any employer would ask of an employee. I also know freelancers who earn a good living working part-time hours.
In this post, we’ll discuss the amount of time that freelancing actually takes. At the end, I’d love to hear your feedback on the topic. Let us know how much time you spend on your freelancing business.

But all those freelancing perks can distract you from one vital business truth. That truth is this: If you are to succeed as a freelancer, your freelancing business must meet a need. Or at the very least, someone has to want what you have to offer.
Too many times, I read about freelancers who want to work only on a very specific type of project, but have no real clue as to whether that type of specialized work is actually needed (or wanted).
In this post, I’ll explain why it’s important for your freelancing business to meet a need or demand. I’ll also list some ways for you to find out whether there is a need or demand for your specialized services.

For some, freelancing is a matter of preference. They are attracted to the flexible life style that freelancers enjoy. Others are forced into freelancing out of desperation after they lose a more traditional job.
If you’re reading this post, you may even be wondering whether freelancing is right for you.
But what does it really take to become a freelancer?
We’ve already discussed the start-up costs for freelancing. But it takes more than spending money to get started as a freelancer. In this post, we’ll take a look at what else you need to become a freelancer. If you’re thinking about freelancing or new to freelancing, this is for you.
Are you hoping to get a fresh start as a freelancer? Or, are you a freelancer seeking to switch gears?
Both freelancers and non-freelancers alike look at freelancing as a chance to get a fresh start–with good reason. Freelancing does give you the chance to try something new.
There’s no doubt that freelancing offers a lot of opportunities. Freelancers have a great deal of control over their careers. But the transition to freelancing from employment or from one area of freelancing to another isn’t always easy.
In this post, I’ll address what you should do if you are relying on freelancing for a fresh start.
