Do you have more work than you can do right now?
Here on Freelance Folder, we spend a lot of time talking about how to get more freelance work…and rightfully so. Many freelancers struggle to find freelance work.
However, there’s another side to freelancing that many experienced freelancers will attest to–freelance overload. This is the feast aspect of the infamous freelancing feast or famine cycle.
In this post, we’ll take a look at this common freelancing problem–that of what to do when you have more work than you can handle. Then, I’ll turn the floor over to you in the comments. You can share your tips for handling a busy workload or explain when you turn work down.
One of the wonderful things about freelancing is that a freelancing job is mobile. It doesn’t matter where you happen to be when you work, as long as you meet your deadlines and produce high quality work.
This flexibility of location has led to a new breed of freelancer–the location independent professional. These are freelancers who combine a love for travel with their freelancing careers.
But, becoming a location independent professional may not be as easy as it seems. In this post, I’ll share some areas to look out for if you plan to work and travel. I’m also inviting any location independent professionals to chime in with their own experiences and advice.
Many people are drawn to freelancing because they feel the flexible lifestyle will give them more time to spend with their kids. With summer just around the corner, many schools are about to end their school year and freelancers with school age kids will once again find their kids at home.
While it’s true that freelancing work can be flexible, it can also be challenging to get work done while the kids are home. Just how challenging depends on the kids and the freelancer… But there are ways to make freelancing with kids easier.
In this post, I’ll provide some easy tips for freelancers who juggle freelancing with parenting.
If you have children at home while you freelance, please add your own tips in the comments so that we can learn from each other.

It’s the freelancing plan nobody wants to make, but every freelancer needs to think about. If you were suddenly to become critically ill or even to die, do you know what would happen to your freelancing business?

I’m not a lawyer, but this post contains some actions that a freelancer can take to make sure that, in a worst case scenario, your loved ones know your wishes regarding your freelancing business and understand how to carry them out.
