For a growing number of freelancers, one freelance business is not enough. These busy, dedicated folks operate more than one freelancing business at the same time.
How do they do it?
After all, most freelancers are already juggling many different responsibilities.
I caught up with a couple of these busy folks last week. In this post, I’ll share some of their “secrets” so that we can all learn from them.

The number of freelancers is growing rapidly despite the fact that many articles and blogs (including Freelance Folder) warn would-be freelancers of the potential pitfalls of freelancing.
I still do think it’s a good idea to warn folks about possible freelancing drawbacks. It’s no secret that some people just aren’t cut out for freelancing.
However, there are also many compelling reasons why freelancing is becoming more and more popular. With all the negativity, it’s important not to lose sight of those reasons.
In this post, I’ll share six of the reasons why we keep on freelancing despite all the warnings. At the end of the post, you can share some of your own thoughts about why freelancing is growing in popularity.

Freelancing is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle.
You’ve probably heard that statement before, and in a sense, it’s true. But lifestyle or not, one of the biggest struggles that freelancers face is balancing work and life.
This is ironic, because the search for work/life balance is one of the primary motivators that drives many to freelancing.
Is work/life balance really possible? The answer is yes–usually, but not perfectly and not always. A balanced life takes some planning.
And of course, there will be some times when you feel that your life is more balanced and other times when you feel that it is less balanced. That’s just normal.
In this post, I’ll provide some tips to help you to integrate your freelancing career into the rest of your life. With a bit of work on your part, you should be on your way to finding a better work/life balance.
But stress and loneliness are not the only ways that freelancing affects us. (Of course, we’ll continue to write about stress and loneliness from time to time because those are very real problems that affect a lot of people.)
In this post, however, we’ll cover some of the less discussed psychological aspects of freelancing. We’ll also look at how freelancing can really affect your outlook on life. As you review these mental struggles that we all face as freelancers, I think you’ll come to agree with me that we freelancers are a unique breed.
