Freelancing isn’t easy; it takes lots of hard work and dedication to build a successful business from the ground up.

Unfortunately, it’s easy to become extremely busy with freelance work. It’s even easier to feel guilty if you’re not putting that work above everything else and that’s one way many freelancers tend to fail.

However, it’s still important that you make time for yourself, your friends, and your family.

#3: You’re all work and no play

Sure, you’re now doing what you love, but guess what? Others around you, ie, your friends and family, are still in the trenches. If you don’t spend time with them or have a creative outlet outside of your normal day-to-day stuff, how can you lead a balanced lifestyle?

Don’t forget about the most important relationship of all — the one you have with yourself. Make sure to find time to do things for you. Whether that’s working out, taking a ‘spa’ day (my personal fave!) or having a long weekend, do things just for you too.

By doing this, you’ll become more inspired and creative, boosting your workflow and capacity. A win:win situation.”
