As a freelancer, you likely handle lots of projects. That’s probably why 10 Free Project Management Applications is one of the most popular posts here on Freelance Folder.
It only makes sense that you could learn from the techniques used by professional project managers. Even if you are the only one doing the work, you can still benefit from some project management techniques.
The exact steps in a typical project management process vary depending on who is doing the work and on the project requirements, but some project management steps are common to most projects. These are the techniques that freelancers can benefit from the most.
In this post, I identify five professional project management techniques that freelancers can use.
Do you like to wait?
I know that I don’t. Whether it’s waiting for an appointment in the doctor’s office or waiting in line, I always feel like I’m wasting time when I wait.
However, waiting is a big part of freelancing. We freelancers do a lot of waiting.
We wait to see if we got the project we applied for. We wait to hear back from a client. We wait to get payment after sending out an invoice.
In this post, I’ll share over a dozen productive things you can do while you wait.
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.

Despite all those posts about how to be more productive, I’ve seen very few on how to close your work day so that you can get more done the next day. Yet, the stage for a productive day is actually set the evening before.
In this post, I’ll identify nine steps you should take at the end of work day so that you can be more productive on the following day.
